Mother Clara Hale Depot Re-opening and 126th Road Posts

In September, the Union filed two grievances opposing the Authority plan to transfer the 126th Street Depot supervisor work into Mother Clara Hale Depot when it re-opens in January 2015 and our claim that when 126th Street Depot closes the Road Posts that were associated with that depot should become OA represented work.

On Friday, November 21st the three parties to the dispute (TSO, SSSA and the Authority) held an interest arbitration hearing before the mutually agreed to arbitrator, Howard Edelman.  The three parties made their cases before the arbitrator and after the hearing the record was closed.

We are now awaiting his decision.  Once we receive the award we will mail it to all of the members.

Attention OA & Queens Division Supervisors Enrolled in the Local 100 Dental & Vision Plans

*** CONTRACT and Supplemental Benefits Update ***

We had originally reached an agreement with Labor Relations that would have allowed our members, who are enrolled in the former Local 100 Dental and Vision plans to enroll in the Supervisors Supplemental Plans during the current open enrollment period, but after checking with the BSC we were told that due to scheduling and enrollment deadline they would not be able to enroll this group of supervisors into the Supervisors Supplemental Plans during the open enrollment period.

We are currently in contract negotiations and are discussing an open enrollment period that would take place shortly after the contract is ratification.  We will update the website on our progress in contract negotiations and benefits enrollment

RWA Payment Worksheet

We have created an excel work sheet for the members to calculate their retroactive payment.  This will help the members decide what percentage, if any they would like to defer. To calculate your payment, you need to input the hours you worked during each pay raise period, make sure you select your correct title.  This can be done by adding up the hours on your pay checks or by checking your time cards.  The attached calculator is for members who are eligible for RWA for the entire term of the contract.  We are working on a calculator for members who were hired or appointed during the term of the contract.

The deadline for deferrals is Friday, November 14th.
