MINEOLA, N.Y. (AP) - Nassau County’s three-year wage freeze is over.

Newsday (https://nwsdy.li/1pcMVww ) says about 6,000 union workers will receive $5.1 million in retroactive pay hikes on Friday.

According to the county comptroller’s office, the retroactive pay covers the period from April 1 through May 29.

Nassau’s financial control board approved new contracts in May for the Civil Service Employees Association and three police unions. That lifted the freeze, effective retroactively to April 1.

It approved a new contract for the nearly 900 full-time county correction officers’ union on Wednesday that will lift the freeze as of June 1. But a spokesman for the comptroller says union members will not see increased pay checks until early October. He says the increases will have a $30 million impact on the county budget this year.
