Michigan Employee Relations Board recommends state employee pay raise

LANSING (WKZO) -- The Michigan Employee Relations Board is recommending unionized state employees receive pay raises of two-percent in each of the next two years.  The plan also calls for an increase in out of pocket expenses for the employees health care.

The ERB is trying to end a dispute between union negotiators and state officials over a new contract.  Union members are upset over the increase in healthcare costs and have demanded a "fair contract."

The Civil Service Commission is expected to review the contract and may approve the deal at its December 18th meeting.
