New York State’s second largest public employees union reached a labor deal with the state Thursday.
Negotiators for the Public Employees Federation and the Cuomo administration reached an agreement on a three year contract.
It calls for a two percent raise in each of the three years.
The tentative agreement still needs approval from the union’s executive board and membership.
PEF represents 54-thousand New York State Employees.
Governor Cuomo said the PEF deal “strikes a balance of ensuring that our public servants are treated fairly, while reaffirming our commitment to fiscal discipline that taxpayers deserve.”
