Deals reached on 2 Pa. state-employee contracts
HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - June 23, 2011 (WPVI) -- A second tentative contract agreement for Pennsylvania state employees is being announced in Harrisburg.
The president of Local 668 of the Service Employees International Union, which represents 10,000 workers, said the deal was struck Thursday night after four straight days of negotiations. Kathy Jellison did not provide details of the agreement with Gov. Tom Corbett's administration, but said it protects the both union members and taxpayers.
Earlier, the administration and Pennsylvania's largest state government union reached a tentative contract accord for about 45,000 state employees that officials said Thursday would combine a wage freeze with subsequent pay raises over four years.
The pact with Council 13 of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees was struck late Wednesday night.
