MORE GOVERNMENT SALARY RAISES ANNOUNCED

Nov. 7, 2001 – Less than 24 hours after announcing hefty salary hikes for commissioners, other top administrators and some non-unionized rank-and-file government workers, Gov. Charles W. Turnbull on Tuesday announced raises for four other groups of public employees.
In a Government House press release, he said that salaries for police officers and corporals will now range from $29,748 to $53,076 a year. Police personnel also may earn career incentives of 3 to 30 percent which would add another $892 to $15,923 a year to their salaries.
Registered nurses will now be paid salaries ranging from $35,000 to $78,000.
School administrators will get $51,271 to $80,517.
And assistant attorneys general will get $50,000 to $84,000.
In the release, the governor said that ratifying of all union contracts previously negotiated will be done on his watch. "The days of negotiating IOU's are over," he said.
The government's chief negotiator, Karen Andrews, was in an all-day meeting and could not be reached for further information.
