    Question What is the top pay for a New York State Correction Officer?

    Hello. I was wondering if any New York State Correction Officers on here could tell me what the top pay is for their position and how long it takes to reach top pay. I know that for a New York State Correction Officer Trainee, the hiring rate is $34,329, the 6 - month rate is $36,111 and after one year the salary is $41,348. I can't seem to find out what the top pay is. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Well, are you looking for what we make at "job rate" (7 years on the job) or when we get our 10, 15, 20 and 25 years "steps"? You have to be more specific. At 20 years on the job we currently make 59k and change. When Gov Paterson signs the pay bill, an Officer with 20 years on the job is suppose to make 62k and change. Less than what a NYS Trooper with 9 months on the job makes :-(

    too true its a different job. different minimum qualifications. the only thing we really have in common with sp is statewide jurisdiction but its nice to know theyre on our side when we are running a little late for lineup.

    Some CO's think a better comparison is NYS Trooper vs NYS CO, compared to NYS CO vs. any other CO's. Asinine I know.

    If there were to be any comparisons, then it should be NYS C.O.'s vs Any other State's C.O.'s.

    But that wasn't the point. I said NYSCOPBA doesn't compare us to COUNTY COs. He keeps leaving that out.

    No, they compare us to State Troopers. Weren't you the one who said comparing us to State Troopers was a better comparison than comparing us to other Correction Officers?

    ha ha ha My God will you guys stop going at each other's throats over every little comment!? This web board is starting to act/sound like The Hack Net! The only reason I compared us to State Troopers is at one time we made MORE money than they did. Then we made about the same. Now they make DOUBLE what we do, and the State complains they're having financial troubles. If you wanna compare us to other State CO's then fine. We're still like 3rd or 4th in line - and two of those states border ours!

    I had one question....

    Have any of you state guys ever worked for NYC Corrections?? I currently do and I am seriously considering leaving and going to state. I know the money is less, but I'm sure there are many more upsides to working for the state. I took the April 07 test, got a 85 and was going to be going into the next class before this freeze came. I just wanted some advice in case that call ever comes. I have 2+ years in the city and I am young...I want out of the city and I want to be part of a department where the officers stick together...any info would be great. Thanks

And guess where we pop up a lot? In your contract threads having our contract compared to yours. So how exactly is he lying. You think every time he post he is calling you out personally and have to go behind him and post some retort. This time you call him a liar when the very second post in this thread is doing what he was talking about. Did you even read this thread or just his post?
    NYSCOPBA's arbitrators used the comparison. He's read the testimony. The lie is his continued insistence that NYSCOPBA does not want to be compared to tother COs. However, the arbitration testimony shows otherwise. The problem is NYSCOPBA doesn't believe the comparison should be with COUNTY COs. NYSCOPBA presented it's comparison with STATE COs of the adjoining states. The comparison w/ Troopers is a salary comparison not a job comparison. And, again, the testimony shows this. Fortunately, the neutral arbitrator agreed w/ NYSCOPBA. The comparison was with other STATE COs and he threw the comparison with COUNTY COs out. If you can somehow gain access to the arbitration testimony you'll find it quite clear. Again, the comparison is w/ STATE COs not COUNTY COs. Percy just keeps leaving out that part. Therein lies the lie.

    "other" correction officers would include County, State, or City. Try and keep up.

    The comparison is with other STATE COs. Percy's argument is that we should be compared to COUNTY COs. Read the arbitration transcripts.

    They agreed so much that we got the same 3%/3% that the NYSP and all other state workers received. Please stop trying to make it out that we got so much more than they did because we didn't.

    I really do feel sorry for my fellow correction officers. This is the type of person we have representing us. Do we really need to ask why we continue to get crapped on?

    State's FINAL offer was 2% and 2%. Forget that?

    cite?link? Maybe if we kept negotiating the offer would have increased. It did go from 0/0 to 2/2 so it's highly likely the offer would have risin to 3/3. But NYSCOBA thought they could get more and in the end we got what everyone else got. Bravo, excellent job the $2.8 million dollar lawyers did.
