Governor outlines salary & benefits for non-union state workers


The state's non-union employees will pay a share of health care costs.

Governor Branstad released details of the next fiscal year's salary and benefit package.
This decision impacts nearly 3,500 employees not covered by a collective bargaining contract.

The governor approved salary increases for state non-contract employees at the same level as provided to members of the State Police Officers Council—which is a series of one percent non-recurring raises on July 1, 2013, Jan. 1, 2014, July 1, 2014 and Jan. 1, 2015.

They'll pay 20 percent of their health insurance premium. Workers can also get a $90 per month premium reduction, if they participate in new employee wellness programs.

In a statement, Governor Branstad said, "We want the best possible deal for state workers in Iowa while protecting the taxpayers who fund state government, which is why we are providing both pay increases and wellness programs to this group of state employees."
