About Programs for PEF–represented employees

Professional Scientific and Technical Services Unit employees are represented by the Public Employees Federation, AFL–CIO (PEF). Article 15 of the New York State/PEF Collective Bargaining Agreement establishes the Professional Development Committee – the PDC – as a joint Labor Management Committee, and provides funding in each of the contract years to address professional development issues. The PDC meets to review, approve, and fund programs addressing the professional development needs of PEF–represented employees.
