Now Online: New NP-6 and P-1 Pay Scales for 2013-14 and 2014-15
1199 members in the NP-6 and P-1 Bargaining Units will be receiving a 3% Wage Increase during the summer of 2013. The next AI is due January 2014.
The 3% across-the-board Wage Increase will be effective as of August 26, 2013 (check date September 20, 2013). As 1199 members will recall, before the final ratification of the SEBAC agreement changed our contract, we got a then-scheduled 2.5% increase for a few weeks. Rather than have to pay that portion of the wage increase back, we agreed to slightly delay implementation of this year’s wage increase to cover that amount.
Wages will also increase by 3% effective July 1, 2014 and again by 3% effective July 1, 2015.

Phase-in of contribution to retiree health fund begins this summer
To ensure the financial health and longevity of the trust fund that pays for our retiree health benefits, as part of the SEBAC agreement we agreed to begin making contributions to the Retiree Health Care Trust Fund (OPEB) this summer.
The 3% annual contribution will be phased in over three years. Effective July 1, 2013 (pay date July 26, 2013), we will be contributing 0.5% to the Trust Fund. That contribution will increase by 1.5% to 2% as of July 1, 2014 and by an additional 1% to the full 3% contribution as of July 1, 2015. The SEBAC agreement calls for all employees to contribute for 10 years, or until retirement, whichever is sooner.
