Statement from Barbara Zaron, President of The Organization of
NYS Management Confidential Employees
Governor Andrew Cuomo’s proposal* to create a commission to address the
pay of statewide elected officials and the legislature looks remarkably
similar to the M/C Salary Commission legislation twice passed -- and
twice vetoed by the Governor.
The Governor has repeatedly declared that the M/C pay disparity should
be addressed “…within the context of the state budget….” OMCE awaits the
2015-16 Executive Budget and the Governor keeping his word to address
the 7 percent pay disparity (due to the withholding of statutorily
enacted raises in 2009 and 2010) that exists between M/Cs and other
Recruitment, promotion and retention of all M/C employees in all
agencies have suffered. The Cuomo Administration admits it; however thus
far it has failed to resolve the problem.
Fixing the M/C pay equity issue is long overdue.
The Executive Budget is the Governor’s opportunity to take action and
restore the dollars that were earned and withheld.
We await his budget and indication of commitment.
Monday, Gov. Cuomo released the details of a pay commission to look into
salaries for statewide elected officials, agency commissioners and
legislators. For information, click on the link below:
