On July 1, 2013 new bargaining unit contracts took effect for state employees in the General Government Unit (GGU), Supervisory Unit (SU) and the Confidential Employees Association (CEA). These contracts included changes to leave provisions which included but were not limited to: maximum accumulation of leave, mandatory leave requirements, leave accrual rates, leave cash-ins limits and floating holidays. In addition, the Alaska Statutes were updated which included similar changes for non-covered employees (Exempt, Partially Exempt and Excluded employees).
Since the initial changes from July 2013 were implemented other contracts have made similar updates as contract negotiations have come up.
