Since 2008, more than $20,000 in pay has been withheld from M/C secretaries, while colleagues working

at the next desk and in the same title have received raises.

Equal pay for equal work sounds like a hollow election year promise to the states M/C administrative professionals.

Make pay equity a budget reality for valued M/Cs.

Governor Cuomo has filed executive budget amendments and despite his pledge to ensure fairness to all state workerswithin the context of the State Budget, he has once again left long-term M/C employees, behind. For years, dedicated career M/C employees have had their wages frozen while new workers are being hired and paid top salaries. According to published reports, the Governor is also seeking to embed appointees within his administration to work on priority projects at an average salary of $70,000. Pay equity starts with restoring the M/C salary structure in this years state budget. Now is the time for action, not hollow promises. Governor Cuomo and the Legislature must resolve this inequality and repair this unacceptable reality where some are more equal than others.
