Friendly reminder: The raise that our union bargained hard for takes effect on Oct. 30! We will see a pay bump at the end of the month.
Officially, our pay increase begins accruing on Oct. 1. That technicality is important not just for salary purposes but for our benefits and retirement purposes; our contract with LA County specifies that their contributions to us begin as the month starts, not as it ends. But that also means our raise will show up in our paycheck at the end of the month.
So, as October begins, let’s all look forward to the 30th. Start thinking now about how you’ll spend those extra dollars when the big day comes!
