Does the 2.75 increase include the cola or would that be separate?

Does the 2.75 aug 1st raise include the cola for this year or would that be a separate increase based upon the percentage the formula states?
The first year of a contract has never had a COLA since the wages are negotiated within the last year. My understanding is that the COLA this year would have been 7 or 8 cents if the money wasn't added to first year raise. The COLA will be in affect every other year.
