Plans to Reclassify IT Titles
Dear sisters and brothers:
I am writing to inform you of the Department of Citywide Administrative
Services plan to change the Information Technology/Data Processing Civil Service
titles to non-competitive titles. And I quote:
"The complexity and diversity of these computer technologies demands
that management have the ability to select and hire its computer staff with
specialized skills specific to the assignment and project and to let staff go
when their specialized skills are no longer required."Read more.
We need your continued support to save our Civil Service titles from being
made into Non-competitive titles. It is important for you to have your voice
heard. Many of your Local's Brothers and Sisters have made it possible for your
voice to be heard by drafting letters to your State Assembly member and City
The form letters supplied are quick and easy to fill out and will take no
more than 5 minutes of your time.
You can still send an e-mail, a letter, or make a call.
IMPORTANT: You Cannot Be Forced
To Take A Position or Promotion
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
You cannot be forced to take any position or promotion. You can not be forced
to give up your civil service position to take a non-civil service position. If
your agency changes or tries to change your civil service status without your
permission, contact Local 2627 immediately. Be cautious, not all positions
offered are protected DC37 or union positions.
For all who have attended Shop Steward training and wish to attend Advanced
Shop Steward training you should call the DC37 Education Fund at 212-815-1700.
The classes start in September. Call for a reservation.
Good and Welfare is generally flowers or a fruit basket sent to members that
are seriously ill or members who suffer the death of an immediate family member
or a new birth in the members immediate family. As I stated generally, there
are some exceptions that we decide on as they occur.
Per the Citywide Contract: Article 5, Section 5, Sub-Section 6:
Family member shall be defined as: spouse; natural, foster or
step parent; child, brother or sister; father-in-law; mother-in-law; any
relative residing in the household; and domestic partner, provided such domestic
partner is registered pursuant to the terms set forth in the New York City
Administrative Code Section 3-240 et seq.
When you send a request for Good and Welfare for a member you always have to
include the member's name, agency and phone number. We need to know the where to
send, the what to send and the who to send to.
