Workers, state reach earnings agreement

August 15th, 2011 by The Fulton Sun in News

The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) Council 72 announced Friday it has reached a tentative agreement with the state of Missouri on a proposal that would give Missouri state workers a 2 percent wage increase in the 2013 fiscal year.

The announcement comes after nearly two years of bargaining by AFSCME with the state, which had not provided an across-the-board pay increase for state workers over the past three fiscal years.
