SACRAMENTO – A majority of California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) members who participated in a contract ratification vote have cast their ballots in favor of ratifying a tentative agreement between CSLEA and the State.
“We are impressed by the thousands of CSLEA members who examined the tentative agreement and participated in the vote, making their voices heard. Together, we achieved a high number of Special Salary Adjustments and other items, including longevity and percentage-based education pay, that work to increase paychecks. Our goal was to uplift earnings and to protect benefits, and it is evident by the votes, that our members saw the pluses in ratifying this agreement, especially given the State’s finances and economic forecasts,” said CSLEA President Alan Barcelona. “It is important for our members to recognize that CSLEA’s work does not stop here. The contract calls for new joint labor management task forces and class studies, and contract side letters are always considered. We appreciate our members interaction with us and support. There is great strength in CSLEA. We are humbled and grateful that our members recognize we are stronger together.”
The Tentative Agreement must be approved by the Legislature and signed by the Governor. Please note that salary increases are retroactive to July 1, 2023.
