Third Installment of General Salary Increase begins July 1
All represented employees of SEIU Local 1000 (in eligible classifications) will receive a 2.5% General Salary Increase (GSI) effective with the pay period that begins on July 1. Most state workers should see this increase in their August paychecks.
This is the third GSI increase we won in our current contract. Overall, our Bargaining Team negotiated a 7% increase for our represented members, in a contract that included a number of significant advances:
We won greater access to quality, affordable healthcare with a $260 monthly stipend for every represented employee who has a CalPERS plan.
We won an increase in livable wages, guaranteeing that our represented employees would earn a minimum of $15/hour.
Thousands of our members received Special Salary Adjustments and Classification differentials in recognition of the roles they play in achieving the state’s mission. We won differentials for call center and bilingual workers, too.
Our bargaining team is already working on plans and strategies for our next great contract, and, as before, support in the workplace from workers across the state will make the difference.
