AFSCME Local 375 Stipend Policy Policy Revision

September 21, 2016

Effective immediately, NY Local 375 delegates must be present at the beginning of the meeting and remain through the business portion of the meeting to receive the $40 stipend. Delegates are required to sign in before and at the end of each meeting. Beginning with the October 2016 delegates meeting, stipends will be paid by the Local directly to the delegates on a quarterly basis.

Effective January 1, 2017, the stipend for the Local 375 delegate meeting will be reduced to $20 per meeting. In lieu of a stipend, delegates may be reimbursed for actual parking expenses to attend the delegate meeting up to $40 for each meeting. A completed Reimbursement Voucher Form with the original parking receipt attached must be turned in to the Local 375 office no later than the last day of the next month following the meeting. Any delegate who receives the reimbursement for parking will not receive the $20 meeting stipend.

Stipends for all ad hoc and standing committee meeting attendance are suspended. The local may provide a meal or refreshments on a case by case basis. Requests for either should be made by the committee chair to the administrator.

Effective October 2016, the stipends for the DC37 delegate body and the Central Labor Council delegates will be paid monthly and will be based on verification of attendance. Beginning in January 2017, that stipend will be reduced to $50 monthly based on verification of attendance.
