Article Published on December 15, 2023

On Thursday, Dec. 14, Today, CalHR issued the long-awaited pay letter that instructs the State Controller’s Office (SCO) to issue retroactive pay and the pay raises we won in our new contract.

“We will begin to see checks covering retroactive pay in December, and our new salaries will be reflected in the January paycheck,” said Irene Green, VP for Bargaining. “I’ve been in close contact with CalHR and the SCO to monitor their progress”.

We believe the retroactive pay check will issue on Dec. 19th; January paychecks will issue according to usual practices.

The pay letter covers the general salary increase we negotiated, along with the special salary adjustments and the wage equity adjustments. You can read a copy of pay letter 23-44 here.
