Collective Bargaining Unit Raises Select LWSD Salaries 4-17%

The current Service Employees International Union (“SEIU”) Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) ran from August 2016 through August 2019. Bargaining for a successor agreement started in April 2019 and recently concluded. The District and SEIU reached a tentative agreement on a successor CBA. 

The SEIU represents Instructional Assistants, Extended Day Instructional Assistants, Technical Support Specialists, Headstart Assistant Teachers, Headstart/Readystart Teachers, and Family Support Specialists. The settlement is within the parameter discussed with the board earlier this year. 

Duration: August 16, 2019 – August 15, 2022 (three-year agreement). 

Wages: 2019-20: Employees will receive pay increases between 4% and 17% on a restructured salary schedule. This includes the state determined inflationary adjustment, which is 2.0%. These increases were based on comparable salaries from neighboring Districts and allows our District to maintain our ability to attract and retain high quality staff.
