MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker has approved 1 percent pay raises for two small state employee unions.

Walker signed the deals into law on Wednesday after they passed the Legislature unanimously.

The new contracts are with the Wisconsin State Attorneys Association and the Building Trades Negotiating Committee.

The deals are for the current fiscal year only and the 1 percent raises are equal to raises other state employees have received. No pay increases are proposed in Walker’s budget for the two-year period that begins July 1.
