Chapter 9 of the Laws of 2005 which implemented the negotiated agreement between RRSU and the State of New York for 2003-2007 and a GOER side letter dated January 10, 2007 provide for the payment of a merit step to eligible BU67 employees beginning April 1, 2007.
Eligible employees with a Pay Basis Code of ANN, 21P or CAL will receive the initial Merit Step payment in April 2007. Employees who become eligible in the future will be processed in the next available cycle:
- ANN employees will be processed in either April or October
- 21P and CAL employees will be processed in September
After an employee receives a Merit Step payment, the merit step becomes part of the employee’s base salary.
An employee’s Geographic Differential is not reduced by the amount of the Merit Step. A future bulletin will be issued regarding any Geographic Differential implications.
Note: A bulletin will also be issued in the near future to inform agencies of OSC’s automatic processing of the Merit Step payments and to provide instructions for payments not processed automatically.
