Overdue AFSCME Raises Coming Next Month


A number of state workers will get hefty raises starting next month… reflecting salary increases that had been promised but not delivered in two previous contracts.

 

Combined with a two-percent increase in the state’s new contract with AFSCME, workers in six agencies will see a total increase of 7.25 percent.

 

But most workers will not receive the back pay that they would have gotten if those raises had been honored as promised.

 

Lawmakers did not approve a $140 million supplemental appropriation to fund that back pay.
