The next opportunity for a general increase will depend on the terms of the successor NPPN Agreement.

For purposes of calculating percentage increases the NPPN CBA uses the Employment Cost Index (ECI) for wages and salaries for private industry workers, not seasonally adjusted, December 2005 = 100.

Any increase is effective at the beginning of the second full pay period following the release of Q2 data. The usual release date is the last work day in July.  If for any reason the Bureau of Labor Statistics delays the release beyond the usual date, the effective date of any raise could also be delayed.
