What We Do: Member Wage Increases

WAGE INCREASES FOR UNION MEMBERS

Our union negotiates our contract, including our wage increases, through the bargaining power of our collective union membership.

Over the course of the last five contracts (since 2008), we have achieved the following wage increases for union members:

  • Federation, Foundation, JBBBS and BJE –union members received wage increases totaling 31.5%-33.5%

  • Jewish Family Service – union members received wage increases totaling 31%-32%

  • Jewish Vocational Service –union members received wage increases totaling 28.5%-29.5%

  • Westside JCC–union members received wage increases totaling 33.5%

In the latest contract (2017) with Jewish Vocational Service GAIN unit, we won 15-17% wage increases over three years for staff with over one year of service.

In the last four contracts (the latest, expiring 2018) union members at Silverlake Independent JCC received wage increases totaling 37%.
