Raises delayed for State Civil Service Workers

The state Civil Service Commission deferred action this morning on proposed pay raises for thousands of state workers.

Civil Service director Anne Soileau said Gov. Bobby Jindal’s chief state money manager Angele Davis asked for the delay.

Jindal must sign off on whatever plan is adopted by the commission in order for it to take effect. The commission generally waits for the governor’s decision before taking action so that it does not approve a plan without a funding commitment.

The proposed plans raise the minimum pay for thousands of state employees as part of Civil Service attempts for state government to better compete with the private sector for employees.
