Over 90 Members Receive More Than $23,000 In Back Pay

Pursuant to the union-backed passage of Chapter 111 of the Laws of 2006, more than 90 members received back-pay awards totaling over $23,000 in their paychecks on November 15, 2006. The legislation, retroactive to April 1, 2004, requires that Local 1359 members receive their 5 year and ten year longevity advances in the first pay-period immediately after qualifying for their awards. Many members did not actually receive their awards until a much later date. The law also applies to all future members who qualify to receive 5 year ($850) or 10 year ($1,700) longevity advances. Members qualify for such awards after they have been at the job rate in their respective titles for 5 years (their annual salary is increased $850) or ten years (annual salary increased $1,700). President Ralph F. Carbone stated "the union had fought for a long time to get this well deserved benefit for our members and we were required to change state law to obtain it. I'm glad we were able to make so many of our members whole."
