Some non-unionized state employees getting raises
A little less than half the state's management and confidential employees are getting raises owed to them from last year, according to the state's Division of Budget.
Management and confidential employees are not unionized and represent about 10,500 people in the state's workforce. A majority of the raises are for eligible employees who are receiving are step increases that were already doled out last year to union employees and the rest of the raises are longevity raises for Grade 17 and below eligible employees.
The planned raises were announced on the state DOB's website in a budget bulletin posted on Monday.
A copy of the bulletin is available below.
Because the state budget was passed with flat spending for state agencies, the pay raises will be absorbed within existing resources, according to the DOB.
