Brothers and Sisters,
As many of you know, the Local 1014 Executive Board has been working exhaustively with the Department since 6/8/19 to ensure that our retro payment to our members is true, accurate, and complete.
As we informed you previously, we found retro payment discrepancies that have not been addressed for our members, and they have been confirmed with the Auditor-Controller. However, we are pleased to say that through communications with Human Resources and Payroll, efforts are in the works to fix it. The Department has also acknowledged the underpayments.
Local 1014 would like to remind you that our Payroll section is on our side as our advocate, and we would like to acknowledge their efforts, willingness to work with us, and diligence in seeing this through to its conclusion. Except in some rare cases, all retro payments should be paid in full with an anticipated date of 7/30/19. In addition to these retro payments, don’t forget the 2019 COLA is in effect 7/1/2019, and you should see this on the 8/1/2019 warrant.
Again, we would like to thank the Payroll Staff and Supervisors who have been working diligently and collaboratively with Local 1014 Board Members to reconcile the pay warrants and pay due to our members. This is a lot of money and we are taking steps to ensure all monies have been received.
Attached are the Department EA and Paycheck Calculator in case you missed them in the Department’s send.
On behalf of your Los Angeles County Firefighters, IAFF Local 1014 Executive Board, we wish you and your families a safe and healthy Fourth of July holiday weekend!
President Dave Gillotte and your Executive Board
