LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan Supreme Court has ruled in favor of the state in a dispute over a proposed 2011 raise for some public workers.

The court says the Michigan Civil Service Commission has full authority to set pay. The Michigan Association of Governmental Employees sued after a 3 percent pay raise was rejected by the commission during a lean budget year.

The association’s members are managers and supervisors who aren’t part of the traditional collective bargaining process. The association said it had an agreement with the state on a 3 percent raise.

But the Supreme Court says any agreement wasn’t binding on the Civil Service Commission. The court’s unanimous order was released Thursday.
