+Young+

Attention Folks:

For those of you who are not aware, as per the Active Civil Service List page of the NYC Open Data website, this list has been extended until January 6th, 2021. For those of you who want to restore your name to the list, click here for instructions on how to do so via e-mail. If you wish to do this in person, click here for those instructions.

For those who will be reporting to Livingston Street in the immediate future, click here for the pre-employment packet and click here or for extra pages of the CPD-B booklet (if you need them) for final processing.

For those of you who are still waiting, you folks might want to check out this and this YouTube video. In addition, if you need help getting your Class B CLP (Commercial Learner's Permit), I would encourage you to check out cristcdl.com Remember, the multiple-choice tests you need to take and pass, at minimum, are General Knowledge, Air Brakes and Passenger Endorsement.

Good luck and remember to check those mirrors every three to five seconds!!

I'm not sure if ATU 1056 has ratified a contract with the TA. I am on Staten Island and a part of ATU 726, we have not yet ratified a contract.The pay difference is minimal $1 or so. 

 

The benefits (outside of medical) differ slightly, different providers etc.

 

The pension is exactly the same.

 

Pay is a dollar less and the other question not sure have ask another im Ta in a ta depot

@161newyork i know few people in the class ahead of me that are TA and was force to staten island and they said the pay is a dollar less which is crazy 

if the benefits outside of medical is pretty much the same thats not much of difference i think 

didn't know the depots in queens and staten island was ta depots 

is it true that if you transfer to queens your stuck in that depot for life 

if i didn't request to the transfer to queens from orientation when the general pick comes around will i be able to pick into queens still

when you pick in the general is it just the depot your picking are will you be able to pick a run also

TWU local 100 starting pay rate is 23 and change an hr.

 

If you pick or transfer to a Queens or Staten Island depot, you will be stuck there for the rest of your career.

 

General picks allows you to pick a depot you wish to go to within your division title (oa, TA) depots or unions zone. When you pick that depot you will also pick a run and route out of that depot

As for the starting pay goes, TWU 100 members get $23.26 and ATU 726 in Staten Island get $22.69. The reason is the ATU 726 has not signed the new contract yet hence the old rate. Once signed hopefully this month, starting pay will rise to $23.26 retroactive March 2017...

So with the cpap if you use it for 30 days is it automatic that you'll be cleared or is their still a possibility you won't be cleared even with the cpap machine?

i believe you would be cleared but you have to keep using it because you go into the ta doctors for follow ups regarding the sleep apnea.

I called DCAS to check my status I'm on the list I'm not on an outstanding certification and I have been removed from the list(Ive been on medical hold for more then 3 months for sleep apnea) I'm 2 days away from completing my 30 days of therapy successfully. My thing is how do I reinstate my name if I don't want to write a letter I remember seeing something along the lines that I could I email them? If so that would be great. I was planning on going Monday to MTA to Mac to give my medical paperwork but I also want to get reinstated because I so ready to get in and start my career.. Thanks for the help

My letter says bring m.o for 87

 

 

So I'm confused bring it or not lol

 

Your letter instructs you to bring an $87 money order. These are the official instructions.

 

This is evidently a new process, previous hires had this cost deducted in their first paycheck.
