Question How are salaries for State Employees determined?

Answer Most New York State government employees are paid according to salary schedules which are divided into grades. Executive Branch employees paid through these salary schedules generally are represented by unions. For these employees, the salary schedules are negotiated through collective bargaining. There is a category of employees designated Management/Confidential whose salary schedule is determined by the Governor's Office, subject to approval of the Legislature. For employees whose positions are allocated to salary grades, the grade level is determined at the request of an employee's agency by the Department of Civil Service's Division of Classification and Compensation. Final approval rests with the New York State Division of the Budget. Non-Executive Branch agencies have their own pay scales which may or may not be derived through collective bargaining.
