Yay! Thank you for all your hard work on our behalf.


Are these raises and bonuses for all Superior Court employees or just those represented by SEIU 721?

This is finally a decent raise and bonus that we can be proud of, and finally feel like we really matter as employees, giving us more incentive to come to work and actually like it, feeling appreciated


Thank you so much for all your hard work in getting us this contract! Just one question if you dont mind:
What is the “Options Sustainability” salary increase?


Does this include Paralegals working at Superior Court?


Does this apply to MOU 8 for engineers?
