IMPORTANT: You Cannot Be Forced To Take A Position or Promotion

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

You cannot be forced to take any position or promotion. You can not be forced to give up your civil service position to take a non-civil service position. If your agency changes or tries to change your civil service status without your permission, contact Local 2627 immediately. Be cautious, not all positions offered are protected DC 37 or union positions.

Good and Welfare is generally flowers or a fruit basket sent to members that are seriously ill or members who suffer the death of an immediate family member or a new birth in the members immediate family. As I stated generally, there are some exceptions that we decide on as they occur.

Per the Citywide Contract: Article 5, Section 5, Sub-Section 6:

Family member shall be defined as: spouse; natural, foster or step parent; child, brother or sister; father-in-law; mother-in-law; any relative residing in the household; and domestic partner, provided such domestic partner is registered pursuant to the terms set forth in the New York City Administrative Code Section 3-240 et seq.

When you send a request for Good and Welfare for a member you always have to include the member's name, agency and phone number. We need to know the where to send, the what to send and the who to send to.
