The move affects Schedule E-2 and Schedule E-3 employees, who include senior staff, assistant directors, deputy directors, institutional superintendents, policy staff, and administrative staff.

Approximately 967 Schedule E-2 employees and 2,440 Schedule E-3 employees will not receive a pay increase, Strickland says.

The salary freeze will extend even to cost of living adjustments and merit raises.
