The Office of Human Resources, Diversity & Inclusion shares two news updates from the Governor’s Office of Employee Relations (GOER).
Across the Board increases delayed
Unions have been notified by GOER and SUNY that contractual, across-the-board raises will be deferred until at least Jan. 1, 2021, for all bargaining units, subject to further review at that time. Current salary schedules remain in place for all bargaining units.
Use of Voluntary Reduction in Work Schedule credits – date extended
GOER has notified us that, under their discretion, they will extend the date by which Voluntary Reduction in Work Schedule (VRWS) credits earned during fiscal year 2019-2020 must be liquidated from Sept. 30, 2020 to March 31, 2021. All other guidelines for VRWS remain the same for all bargaining units.
Please note that this extension does not apply to credits earned on or after April 1, 2020.
