CalHR and the State Controller’s Office continue to work on implementing pay increases for most of the 14 bargaining units reaching agreements this bargaining cycle and for related supervisors and managers. Of the 14 units, only the salary adjustments for excluded employees related to Bargaining Unit 12 will be included in the November pay warrant. All others related to Bargaining Units 1, 3, 4, 6, 7, 11, 14, 15, 16, 17, 19, 20, and 21 are expected to see the increases with the December pay warrant (posted on January 2, 2024). Although the salary increases will not be in the next pay warrant, the five-months of retroactive pay is still expected to reach employees in December 2023.

For Unit 12 employees, CalHR released Pay Letter 23-24 on November 2, 2023. The SCO then issued four months of retroactive pay (back to July 1, 2023) on November 6, 2023. Pay Letter 23-24 also implemented an ACSS salary proposal to increase the Supervising Groundskeeper II, Correctional Facility salary by 16.43 percent.

Another Pay Letter was issued by CalHR on November 27, 2023, implementing the 3% General Salary Increase for rank-and-file and excluded Bargaining Unit 6 employees. Although that salary increase will not be reflected in the November pay warrant, the retroactive pay for five months (07/2023, 08/2023, 09/2023, 10/2023 and 11/2023) will issue on November 29, 2023. CalHR was not able to provide any specific timing for the remaining increases beyond stating they are working to meet the goal of issuing the retroactive pay in December 2023. The SCO reports that CalHR has provided all of the technical documentation needed to program the pay changes and that the SCO is preparing to update the salaries of impacted rank-and-file, exempt, and excluded employees.

ACSS will monitor the SCO’s Personnel and Payroll Services Division announcements and provide updates on when the retroactive pay will issue to impacted excluded employees. We will also post the Pay Letters as they are issued by CalHR.
