Pay adjusted in 'traditionally female' jobs.

The State of California and the California State Employees' Association negotiated a contract that provided for special pay adjustments for employees in jobs "traditionally" held by women. Despite this, the union said it would continue its U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission case in which it asserted that jobs traditionally held by women paid less relative to jobs traditionally held by men.

Under the 1-year contract, most employees received an immediate 8-percent wage increase. In addition, a majority of clerical workers received an immediate 2-percent increase and a 3-percent increase on January 1, 1985. Employees in four other classifications, including registered nurse, librarians, licensed vocational nurses, and dental technicians, received the 8-percent general increase and an additional 3 percent on January 1, 1985.
