Winning a KCC grievance


The PSC has won back pay for five members who were improperly assigned out-of-title work at Kingsborough Community College.

In a Step 2 grievance decision issued on May 8, CUNY’s interim senior university executive director of labor relations, Carmelo Batista, Jr., said that the union had argued that last spring, the five PSC members were “assigned to the college’s office of the registrar…in the adjunct CLT title, rather than in the non-teaching adjunct” title, and that the union said the former title was “inappropriate” because these members did “not work in an academic department or laboratory and they perform the same duties as their colleagues in the office who are in the NTA title.”


The union had insisted that these workers be “reclassified to the NTA title and awarded back pay.”

Batista said: “After reviewing the information presented by the PSC and the college, the chancellor’s designee hereby grants the grievance and directs the college to reclassify grievances as non-teaching adjuncts and to pay grievants back pay.”
