Oklahoma board considers pay raise for state employees

Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- A state board is considering a recommendation to raise the pay of state employees by 3 percent.

The Oklahoma Compensation and Unclassified Positions Review Board will meet again next month to consider the recommendation by the Office of Personnel Management.

OPM board member Gary Jones says a survey shows state workers are paid more than 8 percent below the market level. Jones is also director of the Oklahoma Public Employees Association, which represents state employees.

The OPM says a 3 percent pay raise would cost about $44-million.

The compensation board will meet again January 24th to hear from state agencies.
