Contracts OK’d

Minnesota state workers are getting a raise.

Gov. Mark Dayton signed new contracts Tuesday for five employee groups after lawmakers passed them earlier this month.

The contracts provide a 2 percent wage increase for most employees, starting retroactively from January.

State agencies will not get new money for the raises, and will be forced to absorb the $76.2 million increased cost this year.
