State employees getting notice that 1% pay hike won't happen in July

Last week’s quarterly state revenue forecast was largely flat, and that was bad news for the roughly two-thirds of state employees who have topped out in their job’s pay range. Despite a small improvement in state revenues, the increase is still too small to trigger a provision in two-year labor contracts that would have given 1 percent cost of living adjustments in pay for about 60,000 general government agency workers on July 1.
