(LANSING, Mich.) -- A Wednesday decision by the Michigan Civil Service Committee means that about 14,000 state workers who are not in a union will go without a raise next fiscal year.
Although non-union workers did not see a raise during the current fiscal year which turns over in October, the news was not all negative.
The board also decided to eliminate the three percent salary tax on health care for state workers not in a union. It was decided that the once-mandatory contribution to health care was an improper law.
The move by the commission appears to be in line with a request by Governor Rick Snyder for all state employees to make concessions during tough economic times.
