The Nebraska governor's office announced Friday a contract agreement with state public employees that will provide significant pay hikes, particularly to those working in some health care and high-demand jobs. The state and the Nebraska Association of Public Employees reached an agreement in principle, meaning it's not yet been ratified, worth $47 million in new compensation. The union represents more than 8,000 public employees in agencies throughout the state. Union director Justin Hubly says the agreement “represents a substantial increase in pay for our members working within 24/7 facilities and across state government.”
