RE: Retroactive Payment of April Salary Increases
We have received confirmation from the Office of the State Comptroller that the retroactive payment of the April 2010 general salary increases (both the 4% across the board salary increase and, for eligible employees, the job rate parity adjustment) will be included in the August 4, 2010 paycheck for the Administrative payroll and the August 12, 2010 paycheck for the Institution payroll.
Emergency appropriation bills which have already been passed by the legislature contain the necessary authorization to make the retroactive payments. OSC is now working on the administrative processing necessary to actually generate the back pay. The Payroll Bulletins which will contain additional information about these payments have not yet been issued. We will forward them to you when they are.
We will closely monitor the retroactive payment of these monies to assure that our members are appropriately paid. The statewide class action grievance regarding the withholding of the 2010 salary increases includes claims which preserve our rights to recover the retroactive monies. This grievance is currently pending at GOER and we will continue to pursue this grievance to assure that all monies owed as a result of the April 2010 salary increase are appropriately paid.
