Pay Raise Possible for Alabama Teachers

Montgomery, Ala. Alabama teachers could be in line for another pay raise when the state legislature meets next year, but non-education state employees should not get their hopes up.

Gov. Robert Bentley says he plans to propose an increase for education employees. But he says the state General Fund is too anemic to do the same for non-education employees.

Bentley says he has not decided how much of a raise he will recommend for teachers.

During the 2013 session, the Legislature approved a 2 percent cost-of-living raise for education employees, and none for state workers in non-education agencies.

Merit pay, however, is another story. Non-education employees will be able to qualify for merit raises beginning Jan. 1. Those raises have been frozen since late 2008.

The 2014 legislative session begins Jan. 14.
