Cost of Living Adjustments
Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA) salary increases are negotiated and approved by the State and applicable bargaining units (unions). These percentage increases are outlined in the current contract books and do not affect the salary range, salary step or anniversary date when they are implemented. Employees within a specific bargaining unit all receive the same percentage increase.
Contractually based COLA does not apply to Higher Education Managers.
