We have been made aware that we have two colleges under this MOU that did not process the lump sum payments in this July 25th paycheck as we had anticipated. We have 15 colleges in the WPEA family and at present we know that Olympic College and Edmonds College did not process these timely. We are working with these two organizations but can tell you this, both have informed us that they will have these paid out in the August 10th paychecks. (Direct communication from your employer should have been sent out today as well.)
As ‘coding’ was listed as the problem for both organizations that did not process today, we are also currently verifying that these lump sums are all being taxed properly and will report those findings to all once we verify.
If we have any Higher Education WPEA bargaining unit employees, that were hired on or before July 1st, that work at any other college besides Olympic or Edmonds but did not receive this payment, please contact us at WPEACommunications@wpea.org and let us know.
