BILL NUMBER:S4229

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the civil service law, in relation to
reduction of positions in the New York city departments of sanitation
and correction based upon seniority with an employer

PURPOSE: Amends the civil service law so that sworn members of the
Sanitation and corrections force who, because of economy,
consolidation or abolition of function, curtailment of activities or
otherwise, positions in the competitive class are abolished or reduced
in rank or salary grade, the reduction shall be predicated upon
original appointment on a permanent basis in the grade or title in the
service of the NYC Department of Sanitation or Corrections.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Amends § 80 of the civil service law
by adding a new subdivision 1-e.

JUSTIFICATION: With the threat of layoffs and reductions within the
County of New York Sanitation and Correction Departments, the
organization representing the sworn members of such forces request
that the reduction position be based upon time in grade or title
rather than total time on the job. Since the legislature has
previously enacted similar legislation for the City of Buffalo, the
City of New York (other departments), County of Nassau and the Monroe
County Sheriff's Department, they request this legislation on behalf
of the NYC Sanitation and Correction force.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: S.3895/A.6027 2011-12. Similar to Chapter 731 of
2004

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately.
