You’ll See Cost-of-Living Adjustment in Feb. 3 Paycheck
The Executive Branch master 2015 – 2017 contract included two raises of 2 percent each, and the second of those two raises is set to go into effect this week. The raise goes into effect at the beginning of the first pay period after the first of the year, meaning tomorrow, Friday, Jan. 6. That means you’ll see the raise in the Feb. 3 paycheck.
These raises, known as cost-of-living adjustments, wouldn’t have been possible without the hard work of the SEA/SEIU Local 1984 master bargaining team, as well as the countless members who called and emailed their legislators — and turned out for meetings and rallies at the State House — to make sure the contract was funded in the current state budget.
