(ISU) The UIS is mainly made up of staff in charge of therapeutic care and personal care in public institutions such as those of the Office of Mental Health and the Office of Disabilities and Developmental Disabilities. This unit, represented by the CSEA, includes psychiatrists, co-operators, licensed nurse practitioners, food service personnel and youth service assistants. NYSUT is still working to get legislation to improve the provisions of the Taylor Act. For example, the 1982 Triborough amendment requires that, if a collective agreement expires, its conditions apply until a new contract comes into force. This amendment has helped thousands of MEPs avoid difficulties when negotiations are hampered by difficult economic conditions, recalcitrant employers or both. An earlier improvement eliminated “testing” (one-year probation) against employee teachers who were on strike. NYSDOL is likely to issue guidelines in the coming months, but employers are well advised to now work with consultants to verify existing sick leave and OTP guidelines and their implementation to ensure compliance with national sick leave law. Under the new state law, executives and staff are trained to process disease claims. Salary data should be updated to include the number of sick leave available to each employee. Employers are also advised to include data in employees` pay slips.
Employers who enter into a collective agreement on September 30, 2020 or after the new Land Act comes into force are subject to different requirements. These employers may, under a collective agreement, provide similar benefits in the form of leave, compensation or other benefits for salaried workers or grant sick leave different from what is prescribed by the new national law, provided that the collective agreement expressly recognizes the provisions of the National Sick Leave Act. Descriptions of bargaining units within the University:Employees of the New York Executive Branch are attached to a bargaining unit or called managers/confidentials. Below is a brief description of the management/confidential group and each of the bargaining units at the university with a link to the current bargain agreement. (SSU) The SSU, represented by the New York State State Correctional Officers and Police Benevolent Association (NYSCOPBA), includes State Security officers (except the State Police) and security officers of the institutions. Titles within the unit include the correction officer and the security assistant. Prior to the Taylor Act, public employees in New York State did not have legally recognized conventional rights. Under the Condon-Wadlin Act of 1947 that replaced the Taylor Act, striking public employees were penalized by dismissal.
