The purpose of this bulletin is to inform agencies of OSC’s automatic processing of the February 2022 PSC $1,000 General Salary Increase for employees in the Assistant to Higher Education Officer (Assistant to HEO) and EOC Assistant to Higher Education Officer (EOC Assistant to HEO) titles, and to provide instructions for payments not processed automatically.
Annual PSC employees in Bargaining Units CB, PC, T8 or TC who meet the eligibility criteria are affected.
Pursuant to the Memorandum of Agreement between CUNY and PSC for the Term of 12/01/2017 – 02/28/2023, a $1,000 general salary increase is authorized effective 02/01/2021. The CUNY Board of Trustees approved the agreement during the 12/16/2019 board meeting.
As a result of the deferral of the 2021 Salary Increases, an Addendum to the 12/01/2017 – 02/28/2023 Memorandum of Agreement between CUNY and the PSC was signed on 02/26/2021 changing the effective date of the February 2021 increase to 02/01/2022.
The February 2022 PSC $1,000 General Salary Increase for Assistant to HEOs and EOC Assistant to HEOs is effective 02/01/2022 and will be processed in Institution Pay Period 23C, paycheck dated 02/10/2022.
All employees meeting the eligibility criteria who are Active or on Paid Leave in Bargaining Units CB, PC, T8 or TC will receive the February 2022 PSC $1,000 General Salary Increase effective 02/01/2022. Eligible employees in Leave Without Pay status will receive the increase upon return from leave.
Increases will be applied in accordance with the eligibility criteria set by the CUNY University Office of Labor Relations.
OSC will automatically insert a row on the employee’s Job Data page effective 02/01/2022 using the Action/Reason Code of Pay Rate Change/SAC (Mass Salary Increase) for eligible annual salaried employees in Active or Paid Leave status on 02/01/2022 and whose salary is equal to one of the steps on the 11/15/2021 salary chart for the employee’s title. The salary will be updated to the corresponding step on the 02/01/2022 salary chart.
OSC will automatically insert a row on the employee’s Job Data page using the Action/Reason code of Pay Rate Change/CSL (Cor Sal) for eligible annual salaried employees who are inactive on 02/01/2022 but whose status changes to Active or Paid Leave after 02/01/2022 and whose salary is equal to one of the steps on the 11/15/2021 salary chart for the employee’s title. The salary will be updated to the corresponding step on the 02/01/2022 salary chart. The row will be inserted using the effective date of the change from an inactive (Leave of Absence, Terminated or Retired) status to active (Active or Paid Leave) status.
OSC will automatically insert a row on all subsequent rows using the Action/Reason code of Pay Rate Change/CSL (Cor Sal) with the salary that corresponds to the new step on the 02/01/2022 salary chart if the employee remains in an eligible bargaining unit and title and is on a step on the 11/15/2021 salary chart.
OSC will provide a spreadsheet to CUNY on or about 01/07/2022 with employees identified with off step rows. These employees will not be updated by OSC, and CUNY must submit job transactions for these employees in Institution Pay Period 23C.
If an employee’s record is incorrect and can be corrected prior to the raise processing, CUNY must submit these transactions prior to 01/26/2022 to allow automatic raise processing.
