ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - The Cuomo administration and a union representing 53,000 state workers say they’ve reached a retroactive one-year contract agreement.

It includes a 2 percent salary increase retroactive to April 1, 2015, for members of the Public Employees Federation.

Administration officials say it brings PEF’s contract into line with other state union contracts and will cost the state $73 million.

The union says it will continue to negotiate for salary increments for future years and other issues including health insurance benefits and job security.

The agreement is subject to approval by the union’s executive board and members, who are professional, scientific and technical employees.
