Notwithstanding the provisions of this title, the officers and employees

or retirement systems, including not only the right to admission
therein, but continuance and reinstatement therein, to the same extent
and in like manner as though he had been appointed, transferred or
restored to the civil service of the city, the board of education or any
other agency of any kind whatsoever subject to the rules and
classifications of the municipal civil service commission of the city.
