About the Company: The NYC Managerial Employees Association (MEA) was established in 1968. It is a not for profit voluntary professional membership association, consisting of managerial and confidential employees employed by the City of New York and other public employers located in the City of New York, who are not eligible for collective bargaining under state and/or local law. MEA's purpose, in part, is to protect the civil service and other rights including the pension rights of its members and including the right to redress of grievances, the adoption of measures of adequate compensation and other benefits, that will help in the recruitment and retention of the best qualified persons for municipal management positions, and the obtaining of improvements in working conditions. The MEA also stands for Merit, Excellence and Advocacy The Association has been instrumental over the years in procuring managerial and OJ salary raises, improving retirement benefits, obtaining additional health benefits, developing an adverse appeals process and increasing professional opportunities. City Hall (mayoral agencies), HHC, the NYCHA and other non-mayoral agencies recognize that MEA is the only organization that promotes your interests and advocates for your rights. There is a chapter for each municipal department or agency provided there are at least twenty five members in that department or agency. The purpose of chapters is to identify issues that are appropriate for resolution at the agency level and attempt to resolve them; to actively recruit members for the Association; to attempt to resolve agency related individual grievances; and to encourage cooperation among members.
