Tentative Deal Could Mean Pay Hike for 95,000 California State Employees

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — About 95,000 state employees could be in line for a 4.5 percent pay raise as part of a tentative three-year agreement reached Tuesday between Gov. Jerry Brown and California's largest public employee union. In an email to members, Service Employees Union International Local 1000 President Yvonne Walker said the pay hike would be received by July 1, 2015, with specific timing dependent on state revenues. A California Department of Human Resources spokeswoman said pay increases would be carefully phased in "based on the state's economic recovery." Republican Assemblyman Brian Jones of Santee described the proposed link between raises and state revenues as "laughable," because employees would get the pay increases regardless of the state's finances next year. The deal also includes a guarantee of no furlough days and protects health care and retirement benefits.
