Local 1070/DC37 is looking for a “no layoffs“ guarantee from the City and the State of New York. We are looking for savings on both budgets.
 
Also, the new retirement incentive bill # is S941(2019), the legislators are scheduled to come back after 11-03 election day. The new bill will include Tier 1 and Tier 6. The fiscal note is already done for NYC.
The struggle continues. Fausto

Greetings:

           We met with the Office of Court Administration, together with the New York State Court Unions.  
 The agenda was:   Budget update, the work reduction plan, and the 2% increase that they owe us with 
  back pay to 4/1/20 to be paid thereafter.
          There were cost savings proposals made from different unions, including discontinuing leases for 
buildings.
          OCA stated that they are $28 million short of the 10% cut.  They have not made any decisions 
regarding titles being affected by a proposed work reduction plan.  No titles have been identified, nor targeted.  
          This is a work in progress.  We are still hopeful to reach the point where no one is affected.
Our main goal is to save everyone's job and ensure that the court system provides a safe work environment.   
          We will work until we complete this goal.
          As we get more information, we will share it with you.
                                                                                                - Fausto Sabatino,
