Hello CSLEA members,
We received the good news late Sunday afternoon that Governor Gavin Newsom signed Assembly Bill 118 which included the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) Bargaining Unit 7 and the State.
The governor's action finalizes the 2019-2023 contract and was necessary before any pay raises can be issued. CSLEA has been informed that the retro checks or check for the general salary increase and special salary adjustments will likely be issued in late December and will be separate from regular payroll. CalHR has confirmed that the retro pay will not be taxed as a bonus but at the employee’s regular rate.
I want to thank you for your patience during the lengthy process of negotiations, ratification and the implementation of our contract. CSLEA's work for members does not stop here. We are always doing our best to enhance the pay, benefit and working condition issues that impact our members. Please continue to communicate with us, as we work on your behalf. You can email us at email@example.com or call CSLEA headquarters at (916) 447-5262.
