Thank you for your service.
While the National Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers increased by 2.2% in February 2018, our efforts during the 2017 contract negotiations will result in a raise above the national average (and our negotiated floor of 2.0%)!
The San Francisco/Oakland Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers (CPI-W) for February 2018 just came in at 3.8%.
After including the 0.50% negotiated increase, our total raise is 4.3%.
This increase will be effective on 04/16/18, appearing on your 05/04/18 paycheck.
