The highlights from today’s personnel committee meeting included restoring on-call and certification differentials for the Arkansas Military Department and geographic-area differentials for the Department of Corrections and Community Corrections. This does include Hazardous pay for DOC DOCC. It was restored but as of right now there hasn’t been an announcement but we’ll keep monitoring.
News: Danny James has retired, and John Bridges has been named Interim Executive Director by the executive committee. Congrats, John!
Thank you for your decades of service, Danny, you will be missed!
We had a productive board/executive committee meeting at our annual convention, and are working closely with OPM to create a pay plan to give salary increases to tenured employees. Once the exact wording is approved, we will share with everyone to get you all involved. This document is about the pay differentials; a lot deals with hazardous pay, but also other various agencies.
