Gov. Ricketts Comments on Corrections Contract Proposal

LINCOLN – Earlier this week, the Nebraska Department of Correctional Services (NDCS) announced the administration would deliver a proposal to the state employee union on NDCS employee compensation a month ahead of schedule.  Today, Governor Pete Ricketts issued the following statement after the union released details of the contract.

“This proposal includes raises that are up to four and a half times the raises in the last contract for our most critical Corrections personnel.  It is a significant investment in our Corrections workforce, and a serious step towards addressing staffing and retention.”
