  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-

  Section 1. Section 80-a of the civil service law, as added by  chapter

laws of 1977, and subdivision 3 as added and subdivisions  4  and  5  as

follows:
  S 80-a. Suspension or demotion upon  the  abolition  or  reduction  of
non-competitive  class  positions [in the state service] AND LABOR CLASS
POSITIONS. 1.   Suspension  or  demotion.  Where,  because  of  economy,
consolidation  or  abolition  of functions, curtailment of activities or
otherwise, positions in the non-competitive class [of the state service]
OR LABOR CLASS are abolished or reduced in rank or salary grade, suspen-
sion or demotion, as the case may be,  among  incumbents  having  tenure
protection pursuant to [paragraph] PARAGRAPHS (c) AND (F) of subdivision
one  of  section  seventy-five of this [chapter] ARTICLE and holding the
same or similar positions shall be made in the inverse order of original
appointment on a permanent basis in the classified service [of the state
service], subject to the provisions  of  subdivision  seven  of  section
eighty-five  of  this  chapter;  provided,  however,  that  the  date of
original appointment of any such incumbent who was  transferred  to  the
state  service  from another governmental jurisdiction upon the transfer
of functions shall be the date of original appointment  on  a  permanent
basis  in  the  classified  service  in  the service of the governmental
jurisdiction from which such transfer was  made.    Notwithstanding  the
provisions of this subdivision, however, upon the abolition or reduction
of  positions  in  the  non-competitive class OR LABOR CLASS, incumbents
holding the same or similar  positions  who  have  not  completed  their
probationary  service shall be suspended or demoted, as the case may be,
