Several government administrative changes took place Friday, some financial, some political, some a restructuring. Assistant Chief James Nardozzi received his walking papers, four deputy chiefs will have new schedules, City Council President Tom McCarthy, deputy director of Labor Relations, was seen cleaning out his office, but has his exit negotiation been completed? When asked, he directed OIB to discuss with his lawyer, former Mayor Tom Bucci. The length of Big Mac’s health benefits have been a sticking point in exit negotiations. Also a casualty on Friday was decades-long city employee Iris Molina, director of Social Services, notified by Director of Labor Relations Janene Hawkins her services were no longer required “as a result of budgetary constraints.”
Molina has toiled in government service for about a half dozen mayors in a variety of positions.
“The Office of Labor Relations has analyzed your bumping rights and has determined that you do not have any bumping opportunities available,” Hawkins alerted in her letter.
The pay grade for Molina’s position is $124,110-$136,519.
