There's a disagreement at the State Capitol in Lincoln. It involves the head of the state government's largest union and Governor Dave Heineman.
Julie Drake Abel, the Executive Director of the Public Employees Union says the Governor is discriminating against rank-and-file state workers.
Heineman is designating some state employees as executive leaders.
They will get a 4 percent raise this year while most other state workers get 2 percent.
Abel calls the move despicable and says it damages employee morale.
The governor's spokeswoman says people with more responsibility should receive more pay.
As many as 128 state employees could get the 4 percent raise. Over 10,000 union employees will get 2 percent raises.
