CSA Retiree Chapter Update - April 6, 2015

 

Retirees and Retroactive Payments

 

We have received many calls with questions regarding the timetable of retroactive payments that many of you will receive because of the new contract CSA signed with the city.

The DOE has notified us that:

A.The 1 percent increase from September 2013 and the 1 percent increase from
    September 2014 will be paid on June 18, 2015 with a special supplementary payroll.

B. The ratification bonus of $1,000 will be paid on April 16, 2015.
     This bonus is only for those who left service between Dec. 31, 2014
     and March 3, 2015 and who did not already receive the bonus.

C. The lump sum retro payment will be paid on Sept. 30, 2015.

D. Excessed Supervisor severance will be paid on April 16, 2015.

 

Outreach Workshop – April 14, 2015

 

We’ll provide information about Access-A-Ride and the services provided through the NYC Department for the Aging.

Access-A-Ride provides a host of services for those who have disabilities or difficulties navigating the subways and buses. Access-A-Ride is a service provided under the auspices of the Americans with
Disabilities Act and is based on need not age.

A Deputy Commissioner for the NYC Department for the Aging (DFTA) will be our special presenter. DFTA offers a broad range of services for older adults and support for their families.

You must register to attend.
