Governor to 3,000 Non-Union Workers: No More Automatic Cost of Living Increases

 

By Sahid Fawaz

Need a reason to join a union? The governor of Nebraska just provided one.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports:

“Beginning next year, about 3,000 state government employees who are not covered by labor union contracts will no longer receive automatic cost-of-living salary increases.

Instead, Gov. Pete Ricketts announced Wednesday, they will be subject to new ‘pay-for-performance’ standards that will tie ‘merit increases’ in salaries to success in meeting performance goals.

‘This new pay-for-performance plan will bring state agencies into alignment with private sector best practices and give leaders a new tool to recognize our teammates who are making state government more effective, efficient and customer-oriented,’ Ricketts said.

The change, which impacts only employees in agencies under the governor’s management control, is in line with his ongoing efforts to ‘run government like a business,’ Ricketts said.”
