Paybill Passes Both Houses of NYS Legislature – Members 2% Contract Raise Coming Soon!
PEF Members: I have received many questions about the PEF collective bargaining agreement and the legislative process. As you know, PEF members voted overwhelmingly to ratify the one-year collective bargaining agreement on June 7, 2016.
In order for the NYS Comptroller to prepare and release the compensation for our members he needs legislative authority to approve the disbursements. This is known as a “Paybill.” Knowing the legislative session was quickly ending on June 16, 2016, our legislative team took the ball and had the “Paybill” introduced and passed in a record three-days!
I am happy to announce that the “Paybill” passed both the NYS Senate and Assembly last evening. We have been in direct contact with the Comptroller and have been assured his agency is “all hands on deck” and working as quickly as possible to finalize calculations for disbursement.
Thank you again for all your support,
