Article 8.3 PEP Clarification and New SLED Payments in 2019

Correction for Article 8.3 Productivity Enhancement Program

(Kathy Guild, CSEA Dep. Director of Contract Administration, October 13, 2017)

The language in Article 8.3 of the CSEA/UCS Collective Bargaining Agreement is partially incorrect. The amounts allowed for the exchange of annual leave  to offset the cost of health care for 2017 and 2018 remain at $500 and $1,000.  The new amounts of $600 and $1,200 will begin in 2019. This is a Civil Service Program that UCS participates in and the amounts are set by them, per the negotiations with the CSEA Executive Branch.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. 


SLED Payments to begin in 2019

(Kathy Guild, CSEA Dep. Director of Contract Administration, October 13, 2017)

On September 29, 2017, the NYS Court Officers Association and the NYS Supreme Court Officers Association ratified contracts with the Unified Court System.  Included in these two contracts is an economic benefit called Security Law Enforcement Differential (SLED).  This benefit provides an additional payment on April 1, 2019 of $500 to all NYS Court Officers and NYS Court Attendants and an additional payment of $750 on April 1, 2020.

CSEA has an Economic Benefit Side Letter with the Unified Court System that provides that CSEA will receive any economic benefit provided to any other UCS Bargaining Unit.  As a result of that Side Letter, all CSEA-represented NYS Court Officers and NYS Court Attendants will receive the $500 payment on April 1, 2019.  Because the CSEA Collective Bargaining Agreement ends on March 31, 2019, this amount will be Triboroughed (continued under the old contract) until a new successor Agreement is negotiated and ratified. CSEA will have to negotiate the $750 rate in our successor Agreement in order for that amount to be paid.
