For the current 1-5s, the total growth of the first twelve months will be 6.71%. For the current 2-5s, it will be 6.46%. In addition, current 1-1 and 2-1 employees will translate into the new 1-1 and 2-1 when translated into the new scale and receive an additional salary increase at the master rate.
