I was not one of them , never even knew about that, maybe ppl are making up stories just to get under your skin.

I don’t think anyone is hating. The problem is that MTA has everyone waiting on this list for 4 or so years. Instead of making the list active they called provisionally instead which is weird. We’re all happy for everyone but wish they went about it how they usually do for every other list. Anyway, glad everyone is making progress. Good luck people.

How and where does this Unofficial list exist, how do you know that is true, besides stuff you read on the internet. I mean why would they do that and make the rest of us wait?  What’s the logic behind that, last year they even postponed anSA exam because they needed to take care of all the ppl who took this exam

Well I know because I have family that works in the union and also that are station agents and conductors. There is also an article that was posted about it a few pages back. That’s our point tho. The hiring didn’t make sense but it is what it is. We’re all moving forward. But the unofficial list definitely does exist.

So once you get hired , do you get attcajed about where you came from, if you took an exam, if you are provisional or an transferencia and does the angry union rep try to get you fired baches they feel the provisional should get priority over who gets a promotion, that’s what happens with most union employees they hold a grudge forever with these kinds of jobs.

Thank you let me read this.  I am new to all this , I guess if MTA took this approach there is a valid reason for them to do that.

Union Scores Important Win for At-Risk Provisional Station Agents

Stations VP Derick Echevarria led the fight to protect provisional Station Agents

TWU Local 100 Station Division Officers have scored a vital job security victory for hundreds of provisional Station Agents. An agreement, completed today (Nov. 20, 2018) with management, guarantees that NYCT will offer permanent appointment to all of the affected provisional Station Agents in the order that their names appear on the DCAS list that is expected to be certified on or before Feb. 1, 2019.

“This is the strongest possible assurance that all provisional Station Agents will eventually be made permanent,” said Local 100 Vice President Derick Echevarria. Union attorney Arthur Schwartz explained that current provisional Station Agents were hired off a DCAS list that had not been certified.  “In years past, provisional employees often faced layoff when a list for their title was certified by DCAS,” said union Attorney Arthur Schwarz. “This agreement provides a very important layer of protection to these workers.”

Local 100 President Tony Utano added his praise to Station Division officers for their work.  “I’m thrilled that these workers can now enjoy their Thanksgiving and the rest of the holiday season without

So the new hires are coming on board as provisional or permanent.

i hate to be at a job where all this fighting is going on over a job .

Permanent. They aren’t doing provisional anymore. That was before the list went active. I’m sure the provisionals were explained this before they accepted the position.

Wow, I had. Idea this was even happening, and is good this list will be made permanent , 

i guess if I am offered a position and I am happy to accept, knowingly and willingly accept, it should be fine, unless MTA offered the. A deal . Yes I see what you mean about provisional, meaning they can be let go at anytime. 

Now with the new hire is there a probation period when you are hired where they can let you go at anytime?

Do your job, come to work, be on time, don't generate customer complaints (there is a difference between ranty angry customers and pissing them off to the point they complain to twitter or 511 - the latter is the problematic one) and make sure transit gets the money they're supposed to at the end of the day.

You don't need a 401k, medical, or dental? You REALLY think that tier 6 pension is going to pay all of your bills when you retire? People want this job purely for the benefits alone, quite frankly that's a stupid position to take.

We get paid every other week. Your medical is "free" with 2% being deducted for retirement healthcare. Dental and vision is lumped into the $30 the union takes every paycheck. Nobody is forcing you to contribute to a 401k but it's stupid not to, and you don't need to buy any additional life insurance or disability above what they offer for FREE. Of all the jobs I had, the benefit contributions are less overall for WAY BETTER than what I ever had.

As a new hire with no crazy deductions and a straight 80hr check with no OT, your take home will be about $1300 a check, and that's after all the deductions.

I don’t need a pension either, or any money at retirement , I have already worked since 16 years old paying taxes , social security won’t be around then either , so I am not counting on anything, I should be f8ne, hey I take care of my mothers and she worked all her life.

To each their own. But to not contribute to a 401k is to leave money on the table usually. The company gives you money basically.

My current job I make 18.00 biweekly I get 1600 take some 1100. If I get quarterly bonus of $400 , that pay check is 2100 I bring home about 1500.00 something like that no vacation or sick time, I accrued 4 hours every pay cycle which I need to accumulate for either vacation or PTO once a month 8 hours. No medical unless I want to buy it Cigna 200 $ a month vision is 7.29 and dental is more money . I pay short term longer term and life insurance, lets be real I don’t ever use that and is money wasted unnecessarily . I am a cautious careful person.
