A group of 8,000 state managers may soon get long-awaited pay raises.
The state Legislature finally passed the Management Confidential Pay Commission Act, a bill that would create a seven-member commission to recommend salary increases for the managers.
But it remains unclear if Gov. Cuomo will sign the bill.
“We are still reviewing it,” said spokesman Rich Azzopardi.
State managers have gone five years without a raise, and many earn less than their subordinates.
“We are very hopeful that he will review it and sign it. This is the right thing to do,” said Organization of New York State Management Confidential Employees executive director Joe Sano.
