Tentative Deal with CSEA Includes Raise

Bargaining teams for the Long Beach Unified School District and the California School Employees Association, Long Beach Chapter 2 have reached a tentative agreement for the 2022-23 negotiation year. Included in the tentative agreement are the following salary increases that parallel the tentative agreement recently reached with the Teachers Association of Long Beach:

  • 9 percent ongoing salary increase for 2022-23, retroactive to July 1, 2022
  • One-time “off schedule” 3 percent payment based on earnings for the 2022-23 fiscal year
  • Increase of the travel expense allowance for Catalina Island employees to $1,256

The school district is grateful to CSEA Unit A and CSEA Unit B for their collaborative efforts in reaching a tentative agreement in recent days.

This tentative agreement is subject to ratification by CSEA's membership and approval by the Board of Education. In the upcoming days, the tentative agreement will go through the usual ratification process detailed under CSEA Policy 610, and CSEA will provide members information regarding that process. Once the tentative agreement is ratified by CSEA membership, the agreement will be presented to LBUSD’s Board of Education for consideration. 

Pending final approval, retroactive checks for the ongoing and off schedule increases would be disbursed in phases to qualifying employees beginning as early as June.

While compensation was an important component of the negotiation process, the bargaining teams also addressed other key contract language including:

  • Adding “Kin Care Leave” language to allow employees to attend to illness and/or preventative care for children, parents, parent in-laws, domestic partners, designated person, grandparents, grandchildren and siblings.
  • Adding paid release time for District interviews
  • Augmenting leaves available for bereavement
  • Extending the active period for transfer requests from November 30 to June 30
