This COLA was based on the increase in the CPI between January 2014 and July 2014. It amounts to 33 cents per hour. Under the terms of the 2011-2016 agreement, payment of this fourth cost-of-living adjustment will take effect in Pay Period 20 (pay date Sept. 26), the same pay period that the deferred second contract COLA will take effect.
