Board OKs 5% Raise for CSEA Members

The Long Beach Unified School District Board of Education has unanimously approved a contract agreement with the local chapter of the California School Employees Association, providing CSEA members the same 5 percent salary increase retroactive to July 1 and the same health benefit package that was provided to Teachers Association of Long Beach members and to non-represented employees earlier this year.

CSEA Unit A and Unit B members ratified the proposal with 100 percent approval.

Retroactive checks are scheduled to be issued in June.
