SACRAMENTO -- California's largest union of state workers, SEIU Local 1000, said it has reached a tentative agreement with officials of Gov. Jerry Brown's administration to award "across-the-board" pay raises to its members.
The raises, which were detailed on the union's website, would total 4.5% over three years.
Part of the raises would begin on July 1, 2014, if the state collects enough tax revenue to afford them. If revenue targets aren't met, the union said, the full 4.5% raise would not take place until July 1, 2015. The targets for tax revenue were not specified on the union's website.
A spokeswoman for the state agency that handles union contracts did not have an immediate comment Tuesday morning.
The tentative agreement also promises no furloughs over the course of the three-year contract and unspecified increases in business and travel expenses, the union said.
Yvonne R. Walker, president of SEIU Local 1000, said the union "achieved each of the four top priorities identified by our members," including maintaining members' costs for healthcare premiums.
