A second union that represents state employees has ratified a new three-year contract with the state.
The 4,000-member Michigan State Employees Association approved a contract Thursday that includes a ten percent raise and some concessions for another year.
The employees will work 40 hours a week, but be paid for 38 until next fall.
They can use the other hours for extra time off or receive a payment into their 401K plans when they leave state service.
The union represents park rangers, conservation officers, child support specialists, plumbers, electricians and other state workers.
