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 state employees.

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.

*On 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:
