Salary Raises for Faculty-Librarians – Governor’s Parameters


Dear FSU Members,

Governor Baker just informed that National Association of Government Employees (NAGE) of the following salary parameters for the next three years:

1.5% bonus in year one (July 1, 2020), followed by 2% raise in year two, and a 2% raise in year three.

These will (almost certainly) be the parameters we are given as well – for our current contract negotiations.  As you will see from the attached letter from NAGE to its members (worth a read!), this news did not sit well with the union.   State tax revenues are $1.4 billion above the original benchmark, and billions more are flowing into the state as part of the American Rescue Plan.  Massachusetts is flush and state employees have worked incredibly hard this past year.  We deserve better.

NAGE will be pushing back and so will the MTA.   Stay tuned!

Steve Striffler

President, FSU
