Attention BU 18
Payday has arrived a week early for all BU 18 employees using direct deposit
Due to a calendaring error in the state’s payroll process, all Bargaining Unit 18 employees utilizing direct deposit are being paid a week early. Many unit members have already reported seeing their payroll funds available in their bank accounts. If you have not already received your pay and you use direct deposit, you will likely see the funds available to you as early as this Monday. The state has no plans to recover the funds.
Employees who receive their paycheck in paper should receive their paycheck on their regularly scheduled payday.
Please note that in no way do these deposited funds represent any retroactive pay from our recently negotiated raises. The funds are NOT EXTRA. They represent your regular pay and should be budgeted accordingly. These funds must last you three weeks—that is until your next regularly scheduled payday.
Our retroactive raises will not be issued until our contract is passed by the Legislature and signed by the governor, at which time a pay later will be issued before funds can be dispersed. CAPT estimates that the Legislature will take up our contract in late February or early March.
If you have any questions, please contact your local chapter.
