State Workers To Get No Pay Increase
(wgvu) - LANSING, Mich. (AP) - State workers would get no pay increase in
the next budget year under contract proposals now being voted on.
The agreements with four unions representing most of the state's
unionized workers wouldn't give workers an increase until October
2009, when they would get one percent more. The tentative contract
also includes a three percent increase that workers would get in
October 2010.
State workers will have to pay more in health care premiums,
deductibles and co-pays for health care services under the
contracts, which would take effect next October.
The tentative contract agreements were reached last week. Voting
runs until late November.
State unionized workers got a four percent raise on October 1
after getting a two percent raise in 2005 and a four percent
increase in 2006.
