Members have cast their votes and approved the new 3-year contract with LACCD that includes significant wage increases based on regional market rates for the majority of members.

The agreement includes:

  • Raises for most job classifications, (see the list here)
  • All members will receive a 5.07% Cost-of-Living-Adjustment (COLA).
  • The COLA and the additional wage increase will be paid retroactively to July 1, 2021.
  • A wage reopener for 2022-2023 to continue to fight for more wage increases.

This contract was won because members throughout LACCD stood united for respect and fair wages after much hesitation from the District. For months, members “purpled-up” every Wednesday wearing their SEIU Local 99 t-shirts. We shared photos and comments on social media and we spoke out at  Board of Trustee Meetings. Let’s keep standing strong!

A big part of our fight has always been around getting equitable pay for members at LACCD. With this contract, we are moving forward to closing the inequity gap!

When can you expect to see the increase in your paycheck?
Now that members voted to approve the agreement, the LACCD Board will place it on the December 15th board meeting agenda. When the Board approves the agreement that day, payroll will proceed to update salaries and to provide the retroactive payments. The salary adjustment and the retroactive payment should be reflected either in the last paycheck in December or in the January paycheck.
