Now that our contract is ratified by both SEIU Local 99 members and the Los Angeles Unified School Board, our union has been working with the District to expedite our retroactive paychecks. The District reports that a majority of Local 99 members will receive retro payments on July 23 and will see the increased wage rates starting the beginning of the fiscal year on July 1 forward.
Retroactive pay will be delivered through the normal payment option that members have set up with LAUSD. This means that if you have a direct deposit account set up with LAUSD, you will receive your retroactive pay through direct deposit, otherwise your check will be mailed to you.
Please note that wage increases negotiated in our contract took effect on July 1, 2018. However, members working through the summer won’t see the pay increase reflected until their July 23 paycheck, separate from the retroactive pay.
There is a small number of employees who still receive monthly (not biweekly) paychecks and those employees will see the new rates, with retro period, about one week later in their July pay stubs issued at the end of the month.
All workers in Units B, C, F and G will be receiving retroactive pay. The retroactive check will cover wages due July 1, 2017-July 1, 2018. You can find more information about the wage increases we won here.
We can be proud that it was through our union strength that we won wage increases and will be receiving our retroactive checks. Together in our union, let’s continue to win more. Recommit to building a strong union by re-submitting a membership application today. Click here.
