Learn About Our New Contract

Starting July 1, 2021, State of Nebraska employees will begin working under a new contract negotiated by NAPE. With the new contract in place, a number of exciting changes will be coming your way. NAPE will be hosting a number of meetings across the state of Nebraska throughout the month of June and July to educate members about the exciting changes in the new contract.

During these meetings, we will explain the ins and outs of the new step pay plan which will allow employees to move toward their classification maximum each year. This is a huge victory for state employees that will recognize and reward experience as a dedicated civil servant! If you are curious what your own raise will look like, click here to check out our NAPE Raise Calculator. Other contract highlights to be discussed will include:

  • A $12/hour minimum salary for all employees
  • 50% increase in on-call pay
  • Increase to shift differential for 3rd shift employees
  • Columbus Day & Injury Pay returned to the “E” Bargaining Unit
  • Negotiated Evaluation Procedure
  • No changes to sick/vacation leave or minimum insurance coverage

If you are not a NAPE member, join us! Regardless of your membership status, we hope you will attend a meeting near you. All state employees are welcome. If you come to check us out, you will get an exclusive chance to sport your own NAPE green and yellow with some of our new gear. Plus, current NAPE members will receive an extra bonus gift. We are excited to see you soon!
