Background

CUNY has determined that Continuing Education Teachers (CET) who are in Job Codes 016038 and 016039 and paid on an hourly basis are eligible for the Dependent Care Assistance Program (Deduction Code 443) benefit.  Continuing Ed Teachers paid as Adjuncts are not eligible for this benefit.  Only CETs paid as hourly employees have been deemed eligible for the benefit.  CETs who are paid on an hourly basis will be moved to a new Bargaining Unit and Benefit Program.

OSC Actions

Continuing Ed Teachers currently are in Bargaining Unit AJ and Benefit Program AJC.

To process the new deduction for the hourly CETs, OSC will create the following data:

  • Bargaining Unit - CE (Cont Ed)
    • Union Code for Bargaining Unit CE will be AJC.
    • Union Control Code will be PSC.
  • Benefit Program CET (Cont Ed) will include Deduction Code 443 (Dependent Care CUNY)
    • Union Deduction Codes 467 - Dues and 468 - Agency Shop, and benefits will remain unchanged.
