Questions regarding your Bentec voluntary benefits?
May 9, 2016
UPE Local 1 met & conferred over bilingual pay for the Court Professional Unit. As a result of bargaining, UPE Local 1 was able to reduce the amount of time (from 10% to 5%) a member was required to perform services in order to qualify for a 5% bilingual pay differential. In order to qualify for the bilingual pay, the court was proposing to provide a one month survey based on all bilingual services provided by the member. If met, the second requirement is to pass an oral test performed over the phone by CAL HR. UPE Local 1 requested that case workload of 5% be the qualification marker during the one month survey instead of time, (8 hours). A few days later the court responded that they would like to conduct the one month survey by measuring time not case amount. UPE Local 1 and the court will schedule a follow up meeting in the month of May to finalize the procedure.
