Washington Gov. & State Workers Close To Labor Agreement

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — Negotiators for Gov. Chris Gregoire and the union that represents state government's largest group of employees have struck a tentative pay deal. The proposed new contract would reverse the 3 percent pay cuts of the past two years. The Olympian reports the two-year contract would also promise the possibility of a 1 percent raise in the second year of the contract if state revenue rebounds faster than expected.
