What is this “Living Wage – Classified BW” line on my check? Is it a one time thing?

Good news! Your raise has arrived, funded by the Prop G (June 2018) Parcel Tax. It’s included in a separate line-item on your check labeled “Living Wage – Classified BW” because the amount is fixed at 3.875% of the July 1, 2018 salary schedule.

The parcel tax is in effect for 20 years, so this line item will continue on your check for at least that long. Stay tuned in about 15 years because we’ll probably ask for your help to reauthorize this funding to support our schools in the future.

There will be a retroactive component covering earlier pay periods back to July 1, but it’s currently held up by the City Controller’s office. Taxes approved by voter initiative can be challenged in court for a period of time after they are passed, so the Controller is waiting for the end of that “validation period” before releasing the new revenue to the district. When those funds are released, you should see a lump sum on your check for the retroactive pay. We expect that will happen early in 2019.

02. November 2018 · Comments Off on CBA 5.5-5.6 · Categories: News, Your Contract

What’s in Your Contract? Insurance and EAP

Article 5.5 covers a few insurance-related benefits, mostly for permanent civil service employees. Civil service employees working at least 20 hours per week have long-term disability coverage that activates after 180 calendar days out of work and will replace up to 50% of your lost income, up to $1000 per month.

SFUSD also provides active employees with a term life insurance policy for the duration of your employment; this policy also covers dismemberment and other serious injuries that prevent you from working. Supplemental coverage for the employee and dependents is available if you are interested – the plan document has all the details.

5.5.2.1 details the District’s responsibility for the family of an employee who passes away. Unfortunately, changes in City statutes around employee health coverage limit our ability to extend coverage for families of employees hired after January 8, 2009. The District will proactively reach out to family members to make them aware of all available benefits to help them during their time of need.

5.5.3 reflects, compliant with Ed Code, that Thanksgiving, Winter Break, and Spring Break are not breaks in continuous service for employees.

5.5.4 covers workers compensation and modified/light duty. More detail on this is contained in the Return to Work Policy.

5.5.5 provides that the District will continue paying the employer portion of all benefits while you are on a job-protected leave such as CFRA, FMLA, or using your sick leave (including donated leave):

When protected and paid leaves expire, and 12 additional weeks have passed, the District will cease paying these employer contributions.

CBA 5.5.5

5.5.6 allows for “blending” of disability payments and sick leave to retain 100% of your salary while you are on state disability leave.

The Employee Assistance Program in CBA 5.6 can provide a variety of confidential advice and assistance on financial, mental health, and addiction issues. EAP will also provide grief counselors to worksites in the event of the death of a coworker or other similar situation.

26. October 2018 · Comments Off on Welcome new Board of Education Commissioner, and SEIU 1021 Member, Faauuga Moliga! · Categories: News, Vote!

SEIU 1021 is excited and proud that Mayor London Breed has appointed our member, Faauuga Moliga, to fill the school board seat vacated by Hydra Mendoza McDonnell.

It’s important that we all VOTE for him to stay on the board this November 6, because his appointed term expires at the end of the year. Let’s keep the momentum for our kids!

Mayor London Breed and Commissioner Faauuga Moliga celebrate

We’ll miss Hydra, who was instrumental in getting permanent jobs for our clerks and cafeteria workers, but it’s a refreshing change to have a classified worker with real experience serving families and youth join the board.

Commissioner Moliga is a social worker and member in the Department of Public Health chapter.

“Faauuga has spent his entire life in service to our community,” Breed said in a statement. “His direct, firsthand experience with our public schools, his deep community ties, and his expertise in developing holistic programs that support our youth, particularly those whose lives have been impacted by trauma, give him a unique perspective that I am confident will immediately benefit the Board of Education and our students.”
