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.

Greetings Brothers and Sisters:

The next Local 2627 General Membership meeting will take place on Thursday, June 28, 2018, 6 p.m. in room 11. There will be nominations and election of one (1) trustee to a 3-year term. Refreshments will be served.

We would like to congratulate all those members that were successfully added to the Computer Specialist Software Exam# 7005 Open Competitive list! The list was established on May 16, 2018.
  1. Appeals — For those of you that were disqualified, please reach out to Grievance Rep Laura Pirtle Morand ASAP at 212-815-1932 or LMorand@dc37.net. You have 30 days from the date on the letter to file an appeal, we can help you. The DC37 General Counsel office has legal staff that will work with you to get you on the list. They are very good at this.

    For those of you that were added to the list, but received a lower score than you deserve, again, please reach out to Laura ASAP. We can review your documentation and provide feedback on how to file an appeal for a higher score.

    In order for us to assist you in your appeal, email Laura a scanned pdf of everything that you submitted and received from DCAS.

    Please do not send encrypted files.

  2. Exam List — For those of you that are on any civil service exam list. Please check your list status every week with DCAS, by call (212) 669-1357. Follow the prompts to enter your Social Security Number and get an update.

    The information is updated every Sunday.

    Members are being removed from list without being informed of this action. Agencies can CNS (consider not select) a member three times and have DCAS remove them from the list. Members are being considered for positions without being interviewed and subsequently removed from the list. You must request in writing to via United Postal Mail to DCAS in order to be restored to the list. Call DCAS for instructions on how to have your name restored to the list.

    Be Diligent Check Your List Status Weekly!

    Agencies are not allowed to move to the open competitive list without exhausting the promotional list. If you have information of this happening, please let us know.

  3. Hiring Pools — Starting June 5th, DCAS is hosting hiring pools.

    Even if your agency is picking you up, still sign the form to be picked up and still go to the hiring pool. You can be picked up faster by going to the hiring pool; also, you have a chance to negotiate a higher salary. Your agency might match the higher salary, if you plan correctly. Get the offer in writing.

    Do not charge your time when you attend the hiring pool or any civil service list call/interview. You are excused! You get that time off. Charge the time to "Excused — Civil Service Interview..."

    At the hiring pool, please listen carefully to the instruction that the DCAS staff provide.

    You must interview for three positions and have the interviewer fill out your form stating that they interviewed you. This must be done to remain on the list.
For more information, call the Local 2627 Info Line at (212) 341-4949.

In Solidarity,
Cody Childs
Acting President
