After LACCD said they had given us their last, best, and final offer back in August, our unity and actions moved them to come back to the bargaining table. And, on October 25, members of our SEIU Local 99 bargaining team reached a tentative agreement for wage increases. We also negotiated a wage reopener for the fiscal year of 2022-2023. So, we can continue to fight for higher wages and respect!

The agreement includes raises for most job classifications, (see list below) including an increase of 4.61% for custodians who were earning far below market wage standards.

In addition, all members will receive a 5.07% Cost-of-Living-Adjustment (COLA) Plus, the COLA and wage increase will be paid retroactively to July 1, 2021.
