The Michigan Civil Service Commission voted through new contracts for unionized state employees, Wednesday, 3-1.

This comes after the original vote wound up tied, 2-2, last month. The new contracts offer state employees modest pay increases, but also increase out-of-pocket health care costs. The recommendations came from an impasse panel, when the state and unions weren't able to come to an agreement, last year.

Unionized state employees in attendance were disappointed by the ruling, claiming high state revenues don't call for an increase in health care costs.
