(a) Beginning on July 1, 2015, every employee shall receive an annual salary increase of $1,000 per year.  This increase is permanent.

(b) The salary increase provided in subsection (a) of this section is in addition to any across‑the‑board, cost‑of‑living or percentage salary increase which may be granted in any fiscal year by the Legislature.

(c) This section does not prohibit other pay increases based on merit, seniority, promotion or other reason, if funds are available for the other pay increases:  Provided, That the executive head of each spending unit shall first grant the mandated increase in compensation in this section to all eligible employees prior to the consideration of any increases based on merit, seniority, promotion or other reason.

NOTE: The purpose of this bill is to grant all public employees a $1,000 per year permanent pay increase.

 

 

This section is new, therefore, it has been completely underscored.
