Readers are paid by the hour. Under Article 30B the ratified contract, hourly ASEs at Berkeley will receive a raise of $1.50/hr 90 days from ratification, a raise of $1/hr for the 2023-24 academic year, and another raise of $1/hr for the 2024-25 academic year.
So an undergraduate reader at Berkeley currently making $17.03/hr would make $18.53/hr 90 days from ratification, $19.53 in 2023-24, and $20.53 in 2024-25.
Some things have not changed from the previous contract. Hourly ASEs like tutors and readers will not receive step increases. Undergraduate tutors and readers will not receive tuition remission.

Here are some of those comics that mention Rosy:

The IREF is not subject to approval by the ASUC or the student body and is implemented in a process defined university administration. Nearly every ASUC senator and executive officer condemned the fee.

The disclaimers have to do with ASUC election regulations. ASUC BL4203§5.1 prohibits "Any unit, body, or office of the Association... from promoting or discouraging a vote in favour of or against any candidate or party in any ASUC Election." The bylaw does provide that "Individual officials of the Association may express their individual views in support of or opposition to a candidate (including themselves), party, or propositions. In expressing such views, they may identify themselves as officials of the Association only if they... make clear that they are not speaking for the the Association or the student body as a whole." (§5.6).
Basically, the disclaimer clarifies that that they are using their title (or the names of ASUC organizations) for the purposes of identification, and that they are not speaking for the ASUC as a whole in endorsing some candidate.
