April 29, 2004
'I am pleased that this unit accepted an agreement consistent with the state's contract pattern," said Alaska Governor Frank Murkowski. The agreement provides two percent wage increases in the second and third years of a three-year agreement. The state agrees to provide a consistent level of health insurance contributions to employees of the bargaining unit.
CEA represents more than 200 employees that formulate and implement management polices associated with collective bargaining and human resources systems. CEA members support key Department of Administration programs in finance, personnel, labor relations and retirement and benefits. Recently, all human resources functions for the State of Alaska were centralized within the Department of Administration.
Acting Commissioner of Administration
Ray Matiashowski said, "I'm proud to have a voluntary agreement
with these hard-working professionals. Over the last eight months
they have worked together to create new efficiencies and a higher
level of service. State government will need the skills of these
professionals to meet the significant challenges ahead."
