08/11/2017 - In accordance with the 2015-2018 Collective Bargaining Agreement, career employees represented by the APWU will receive a 13 cents per hour cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) effective September 2. The increase is the result of an increase in the Consumer Price Index (CPI-W). The increase will appear in paychecks dated September 22, 2017 (Pay Period 19-2017), and will total $270.00 per year.

The next COLA increase will be based on the Januay 2018 CPI-W and will be effective in the second full pay period after the release of January 2018 CPI-W. The last COLA increase of the 2015-2018 CBA will be based on the July 2018 CPI-W and effective un the second full pay period after the release of the July 2018 CPI-W. The cost-of-living adjustments are in addition to general wage increases.
