As part of our current collective bargaining agreement with L.A. County, an extra 2.75% step will be added to the salary schedules of SEIU Local 721 members effective January 1, 2021.
All Options-eligible SEIU 721 members will receive the additional 2.75% salary increase once they have been at the current top step for at least one year.
For those members who have already been at top step for one year, they will see the 2.75% pay hike reflected in their January 29, 2021 paychecks. Others will receive the 2.75% increase once they reach the new top step.
The only exception to this is SEIU 721 members in the Registered Nurses (BU 311) and Supervising Registered Nurses (BU 312) bargaining units. Members in these units, whose salary schedules have 20 steps, will receive the 2.75% increase once they have completed Step 9. Those BU 311 and 312 members who have already been at Step 9 or higher for at least one year will receive the 2.75% increase effective January 1, 2021, which will be reflected on the January 29, 2021 paychecks.
Together, we win!
