Rent Inspectors Reallocated To New Higher Grades

On October 19, 2006, the New York State Department of Civil Service reallocated the grades of Rent Inspector 1 and Rent Inspector 2 (including Spanish speaking) as follows:

Rent Inspector 1 - Grade 11 to higher Grade 14
Rent Inspector 2 - Grade 14 to higher Grade 18

On October 23, 2006, the New York State Division of the Budget approved the determination of the Department of Civil Service.

The effective date of the reallocation was retroactive to April 6, 2006, the beginning of the state's fiscal year. The new job rate for the Rent Inspector 1 title will result in salaries topping out at $45,444 (rather than the current $38,590); the new job rate for the Rent Inspector 2 title will see salaries topping out at $55,149 (rather than the current $45,444). Longevity advances of $850 and $1,700, when earned, can ultimately be added to those amounts.

Based on a variety of factors (years of service, anniversary dates, etc.), current Rent Inspectors (both 1 & 2) will immediately see their salaries increase from $3,300 to $6,500 per year.

On May 16, 2006, Local 1359 had petitioned the Department of Civil Service to reclassify and/or reallocate the inspectorial titles to higher levels because of inadequate pay, recruitment and retention problems and the taxing and complex job duties of these members. The New York State Division of Housing & Community Renewal (DHCR) also petitioned Civil Service for this reallocation and the agency deserves kudos for their actions and support for the inspectors. Together the union and the employer were able to make this happen.

Current Inspectors will be receiving their reallocated lines and back pay awards in paychecks dated November 15, 2006.

Ralph F. Carbone
President
