Step Pay Is Here!

With our new contract taking effect July 1, a number of exciting changes are taking place. NAPE will continue our meetings across the state throughout the month of July to educate members about the 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 to dedicated civil servants! If you are curious to see what your 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! Can’t make the meeting? Members can watch a recording here. Email for the password.
