MOST STEP INCREASES TO BE EFFECTIVE OCT. 18

Oct. 6, 2001 – Not all unionized government employees are eligible for salary step increases that will take effect Oct. 18, Karen Andrews, the government's chief negotiator, said in a release Friday.
To be eligible, she said, a member of a bargaining unit must have been a part of the union at the time its contract was negotiated. "This includes persons who retired before the contract was implemented and those for whom a specific retirement provision was included," she said.
Andrews said contracts were negotiated and left partially implemented or not implemented at all during the previous administration. "These contracts … will finally be honored on Oct. 18," she said, with the exception of the Narcotics Strike Force union, for which step increases will be effective Oct. 31.
The unions are:
– American Maritime Officers District 2A – Master
– Educational Administrators Association
– International Association of Fire Fighters (firefighters)
– International Association of Fire Fighters (supervisors)
– Law Enforcement Supervisors Union
– Licensed Practical Nurses
– Police Benevolent Association
– Seafarers International Union – Master
– Seafarers International Union (assistant attorneys general)
– Seafarers International Union de Puerto Rico (security guards)
– United Steel Workers of America – Master
– United Steel Workers of America (enforcement officers)
– United Steel Workers of America (Narcotics Strike Force)
