Mayoral Agency Managers to Receive Raises
We learned late this afternoon that Mayor Bill de Blasio signed Mayor’s Personnel Order Nos. 2015/1 and 2015/2 on January 20, thereby approving raises to approximately 10, 400 managerial and Original Jurisdiction (OJ) employees working in the Mayoral agencies. The raises are in line with the contract ratified by District Council 37 last August, totaling 10.42% from September 1, 2011 – July 1, 2017.
New York City Managerial Employees Association President Stu Eber said, “This is a very good first step by our Mayor to provide his non-unionized employees with the raises they deserve. We are particularly pleased that the Personnel Order states that, “all full-time managers, other than deputy Mayors and Agency Heads, will receive a $1,000 lump sum payment effective the date this Order is signed.”
“We are also gratified that these increases are across-the-board for people who were in the managerial and OJ titles since September 1, 2011 and that Agency Heads will have the discretion to give retroactive raises to employees who were promoted or hired after the September 1,2011 effective the date of appointment,” said President Eber.
The Mayor’s Personnel Orders do not immediately promulgate raises for non-Mayoral agencies, particularly HHC, NYCHA, the Department of Education and the School Construction Authority, Mr. Eber said, “We hope the Administration encourages these agencies to provide their 6,500 managerial and OJ employees with the same DC 37 pattern. This did not happen for NYCHA, DOE and SCA managers in 2009. We hope their new leaders will use this opportunity to make amends for the actions of their predecessors.”
