I haven't heard anything about it either. With the rising cost of fuel a COLA increase would be most welcome. It seems that everytime I figure out a way to make a little bit more money, taxes, insurance, or some other cost take it away.
At our morning PCM on Friday our union business agent was there and did announce that we will be seeing a 12 cent COLA in addition to our yearly increase. This would be in the Metro Detroit district, which is covered by the glorious (sarcasm intended) Central States .
Anyone know what areas are going to see this COLA raise? Is it just for full-timers or will it be part of everyone's raises? I'm in Indianapolis so would I be seeing this raise in August in addition to the already scheduled $1.10 raise?
