PECG’s Meet and Confer Team is happy to report that CalHR (representing the State) has agreed to extend the benefits of PECG’s 2021 Side Letter to Unit 9 supervisors and managers. The Meet and Confer Team represents PECG in all discussions with CalHR on Unit 9 supervisory and managerial pay and benefit matters.
It is an undeniable truth – PECG has delivered unparalleled victories on behalf of Unit 9 supervisors and managers like you. Thanks to PECG, Unit 9 supervisors and managers have seen:
Salaries go up by at least 97% in the last 16 years, by far the largest increase in state service.
CalPERS pensions have been protected.
Our health care CoBen benefits are the highest in state service.
Our jobs have been protected from outsourcing.
This level of success didn’t happen by accident. It is the result of the united strength and collective effort of 11,000 PECG members, including over 1,700 supervisors and managers, working together to achieve our shared goals.

PECG delivers thanks to the overwhelming support of our members. The latest example is PECG’s successful extension of the provisions of PECG’s 2021 Side Letter – which provides a 5.58% pay raise and ends the PLP 2020 program – to our supervisory and managerial members.
A high percentage of membership is PECG’s source of power at the meet and confer and bargaining tables, and provides the resources necessary to effectively advocate for our members in all venues – the Governor’s Administration, Legislature, courts, media, State agencies and departments, and CalPERS.
Thanks to our strong and committed membership, PECG has an unprecedented record of delivering for supervisors and managers:
Our salaries have increased by more than 97% over the last 16 years.
Defined-benefit pensions have been protected from countless attacks.
Our health care co-ben benefits are the best in state service.
State engineering work is overwhelmingly performed by public servants like you – and not outsourced.
Our members receive expert representation on employment and professional issues from experienced attorneys and labor relations specialists.
Would you have done as well, negotiating alone with the State of California for your own pay and benefits? The answer is of course not. Our success, your success, is the result of a committed membership working together to achieve our shared goals.
As a supervisor or manager, you are eligible to join PECG, but our records indicate that you are currently not a member. PECG would like to invite you to join the over 1,700 Unit 9 supervisory and managerial colleagues who are currently members.
Thank you for your consideration. We look forward to serving you as a PECG member!

Congratulations, PECG is happy to report that the 4% general salary increase (GSI) that is part of PECG’s 2018-20 Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) has been extended to all Bargaining Unit 9 affiliated supervisors and managers. According to the State Controller’s Office, the raise will be included in your July pay warrant.
This is the second of two general pay raises you will have received as a result of the collective efforts of PECG and our current MOU. Previously, all PECG-represented employees received a 4.5% GSI retroactive to July 1, 2018.
Also of note, effective July 1, 2019, employees with 21 years or more of state servicewill receive a 3% differential above their base salary. Employees whose worksites are located in the San Francisco – Bay Area continue to be eligible for the geographic pay differential of $250 per month.
These pay increases are made possible thanks to the overwhelming support of our membership. As a supervisor or manager, you are eligible to be a PECG member. In fact, nearly 60 percent of senior engineers and related professionals are PECG members because they know PECG is dedicated to what’s important: improved pay, protecting our pensions, affordable health care and other benefits, stopping the outsourcing of our work, and providing expert professional representation.
Unfortunately, our records indicate that you are currently not a member. To support PECG’s future efforts to improve our pay, pension and health care, please join PECG today. If you sign up now, you can begin enjoying the benefits of membership immediately, and we will send you some fun and useful PECG promotional merchandise of your choice.
With the unified support of members, PECG Delivers!

Thanks to PECG’s hard work and perseverance, CalHR (representing the State) has officially confirmed that all of the provisions of the new PECG MOU will be provided to Unit 9 supervisors and managers. Here is what the MOU will mean for you:
4.5% General Salary Increase (GSI).
2% state experience pay differential for Unit 9 supervisors and managers with 20 or more years of state service.
$250 per month geographic pay differential for Unit 9 supervisors and managers whose worksites are located in any of the following high-cost counties: Alameda, Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo, and Santa Clara.
Dozens of other new and carry over economic provisions and job-related benefits.
All of the MOU’s economic and other benefits will also be retroactive to July 1, 2018 for Unit 9 supervisors and managers.
According to CalHR, all of the economic benefits provided by the new PECG MOU will likely appear in the November pay warrant that you will receive December 1. Separate checks providing back pay from July 1, 2018 for the Unit 9 raise, experience and geographic differentials, and other economic benefits provided by the MOU are also expected in November.
By extending all of the MOU’s economic and other provisions, PECG has delivered yet again for you and all Unit 9 supervisors and managers.
Today, we write as PECG’s Meet and Confer Team to urge you to please join PECG. The PECG MOU, and the extension of all of its provisions to supervisors and managers, is the result of the united strength of over 10,000 PECG members, including over 1,300 supervisors and managers, working together to deliver competitive pay, protect pensions and health care benefits, and ensure our jobs are protected from outsourcing.
To bring additional strength to PECG and to help ensure the extension of the 2019 pay raise and the next PECG MOU to supervisors and managers, we need you and every other Unit 9 supervisor and manager to be PECG members.
