Late yesterday, the Massachusetts House and Senate passed the supplemental budget funding bill, which contains the authorization to fund the State (Units 1, 3, 6 not MassDOT) and the Trial Court contracts.  The Governor has 10 days to sign the bill, but we expect that he will act quickly.  Once the Governor signs, the HRD will send out an implementation memorandum to all agencies to implement the pay raises.  We estimate that this will take two pay periods before you will see the prospective raise in your check, and potentially three pay periods before the retroactive raises hit.  

For Units 1, 3 and 6, the raises agreed upon in the Collective Bargaining Agreement contained in this funding bill are 1% + 1% retroactive to the first pay period of July 2017, and 2% retroactive to the first pay period of July 2018.  

For Trial Court, the raises agreed upon in the Collective Bargaining Agreement contained in this funding bill are 1% + 1% retroactive to the first pay period of July 2017, and 2% retroactive to the first pay period of July 2018.  
We will update you as soon as possible with further news.
