Employees, civil service
Public Authorities (PBA) CHAPTER 43-A, ARTICLE 8, TITLE 28-B
§ 2657. Employees, civil service. 1. The appointment and promotion of
all non-exempt/non-management confidential employees of the authority
shall be made in accordance with the civil service law and the rules of
the Schenectady county civil service commission.

2. In accordance with the provisions of section seventy of the civil
service law, any officer or employee of a municipality, school district
or special district in the service area, may, at the request of the
authority, be transferred to the authority and shall be eligible for
such transfer and appointment, without further examination, to
applicable offices, positions and employment under the authority. Any
such officers or employees so transferred to the authority pursuant to
this section, who are members of or benefit under any existing pension
or retirement fund or system, shall continue to have all rights,
privileges, obligations and status with respect to such fund or system
as are now prescribed by law, but during the period of their employment
by the authority, all contributions to such funds or systems to be paid
by the employer on account of such officers or employees shall be paid
by the authority.

3. A transferred employee shall remain in the same collective
bargaining unit as was the case prior to his or her transfer. Successor
employees to the positions held by such transferred employees shall,
consistent with the provisions of article fourteen of the civil service
law, be included in the same unit as their predecessors. Employees
serving in positions in newly created titles shall be assigned to the
same collective bargaining unit as they would have been assigned to such
unit were such titles created prior to the establishment of the
authority. Nothing contained in this title shall be construed (a) to
diminish the rights of employees pursuant to a collective bargaining
agreement or (b) to affect existing law with respect to an application
to the public employment relations board seeking a designation by the
board that certain persons are managerial or confidential.
