Union Update

Good afternoon,
I have been working with HRD and the Comptroller’s Office on the implementation of the Unit B CBA increases and the implementation of the remainder of the Classification Study.

The Unit B CBA increases effective 7/9/17, 7/8/18 and 7/7/19 are scheduled to be processed during the pay period August 16, 2020 to August 29, ,2020 (included in pay advice of September 4, 2020).  In the event there is an issue and it cannot be processed during this pay period I will let you know.

I have submitted the request to process the CBA retroactive payments to the Office of the State Comptroller but have not received a confirmation of the date they will be processed.  Once I have the date I will let you know.

The increase of $700.00 to Step 12 effective 6/30/2020 and the $750.00 bonus for employees who remain red-circled will be processed after the classification/bargaining unit changes effective 2/16/2020 are implemented.

Once both the CBA increase and retroactive payments are processed we will continue with the implementation of the remaining Classification Study changes.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
