Subject

Organization of New York State Management/Confidential Employees, Incorporated (OMCE) Dues Increase

Purpose

To notify agencies of an automatic dues increase.

Affected Employees

Employees in Management/Confidential positions who are members of OMCE.

Effective Date(s)

Administration paychecks dated August 3, 2011.
Institution paychecks dated August 11, 2011.

Background

The dues structure for the Organization of New York State Management/Confidential Employees, Incorporated (Deduction Code 209) is based on the employee's grade level or status as a non-graded employee.  Grade 622 and below are currently paying $8.75 and grade 623 and above are currently paying $17.50 biweekly.  The new rates are $9.25 and $18.50 respectively. 

The dues for non-graded employees whose positions are equated to salary grades should be calculated according to their equated grade.  The dues amount for non-graded employees whose positions are not equated to salary grades is determined by their salary rates.  If the NS salary (Gr 600's), the OS salary (Gr 700's) and the Trainees salary (Gr 800's) is equal to or less than the hiring rate of a grade 622, then the dues are at the lower rate.  However, if the salary is above the hiring rate of a grade 622, the dues are at the higher rate.
