Dear Brothers and Sisters
I assume many of you in DOB know by now that DCAS has sent out notification letters informing you of test results from recent civil services exams. We have received many calls pertaining to wages and duties in regard to accepting new positions. Please feel free to call the union hall if you still have any questions. I have also been contacted by DCAS. They have informed me that they will be reviewing challenged questions to the recent housing inspector exam shortly. The union has submitted the names of inspectors representing the union to be part of the review process.We are still waiting for test result notifications to HPD inspectors.
The Supreme Court has begun to hear the Janus V. AFSCME case as we have mentioned in the previous newsletter. The decision is expected in June 2018. This case could have significant ramifications to public sector unions thru out the country in the event of an unfavorable decision.
The IUOE has a special fight back conference meeting next month. Several locals including local 211 have been asked to attend to prepare for the decision in the case. The New York City Municipal labor committee is expected to meet with the city to also prepare for an unfavorable decision and minimize the aftereffects in the city union forces. I will be attending the MLC meetings and keep you posted of any significant results. I will be attending the 107th Anniversary Commemoration of the Triangle Shirt Waist factory fire where 145 workers died, mostly young immigrant woman, This will take place Friday March 23 rd. It will be held in the village on Washington place and Greene St NYC, where the fire took place. This fire resulted in changing many building codes in New York City and the country. Please have a safe and happy
Saint Patrick's Day
David McCredo c.p.c.a.
President local 211
