The San Francisco Accountants and Auditors chapter represents Accountants and Auditors employed by CCSF. Collectively, they are responsible for monitoring and managing the city’s fiscal resources, and generate much needed revenue for the City.
A number of our San Francisco members are inquiring about the negotiated pay raise of 3% that went into effect October 11. You may have expected to see it in your paycheck from this Tuesday, Oct. 21, but it wasn’t there. What’s happening?
Local 21 and many other City employee unions have reached a tentative agreement that will save employees more than $3 million in healthcare premiums in 2014 and over $62 million over the next 5 years. The tentative agreement must be approved by the membership. If approved, the tentative agreement also will go a long way towards ensuring Local 21 members maintain their choice between Kaiser and Blue Shield coverage.
At the start of the New Year, we predicted that health care would be the “Issue of 2013.” Less than half way through the year, our prediction came true. As part of our efforts through the Public Employee Committee’s (PEC) Labor Management Committee on Health and Wellness, Local 21 has been at the forefront of fighting for transparent, accountable active and retiree health care on multiple fronts.
Last year, Local 21 members ratified a new contract with a full 4.62% salary restoration and end to furlough days, the first scheduled wage increases since 2008, two additional 1-time paid floating holidays, and other improvements.
