(AP) Federal workers who were furloughed or worked without pay during the shutdown will get back pay in their next paychecks, which for most employees come Oct. 29.


The timeline announced Thursday means workers will have to wait nearly two weeks to recover back wages. Some union officials say that's a hardship for many who have bills to pay. The National Treasury Employees Union is asking agencies to issue retroactive paychecks next week.


The measure ending the shutdown also lets federal workers get a 1 percent pay raise in January their first pay increase since salaries were frozen in 2010. The legislation keeps on track a plan for raises that President Barack Obama laid out earlier this year.
