April 2001 Civil Service Report

The PEF Region 8 Civil Service Committee met on April 24, 2001 at PEF HQ.

The committee discussed the progrees of the Article 78, Zone Scoring case now before the Supreme Court in Albany County.

The committee was concerned that attorney Lisa King, who has been handling the case since PEF first brought suit, was not in court to present the case. Ms King was reported to be in Buffalo on another case. The case was instead presented by Dionne Wheatley. Former Civil Service Committee Chair, Lou Barr suggested that PEF Legal Counsel, Bill Seamon wanted Ms Wheatley to take over the case.

The Committee has invited MS King to their next meeting to discuss this particular case.

There was concern about the relationship between the Committee and the PEF Legal Department.

In other business, the response to a survey sent out by PEF regarding Parallel Career Ladders had very poor response, only 5 of 100 surveys were returned. The Committee will attempt to have additional surveys sent out.
