A common-sense hybrid-work policy to keep NYC lean, innovating, and competitive
We are a hardworking city of innovators, and leaders. Speaking on behalf of my fellow city workers, we have proven that we can be productive during the darkest days of the COVID-19 pandemic, so lets adopt a flexible approach.
A common sense hybrid work policy will restore equity, quality of life and respect to NYC’s dedicated civil servants. It will retain the amazing talent the city workforce has, even as many consider leaving for so many other opportunities that do offer telework.

Why is there double standard for city workers? Why is FISA or Cyber is able to WFH or Hybrid as of today (2022)! Why?
Also there is no point of looking for "equality" everywhere. Last we checked, we all had different paychecks.
Cyber is not able to WFH - this changed a few months back. Not sure about FISA.
I don't know about FISA but non-Mayoral agencies get to make their own policies, and I believe FISA is non-Mayoral.
Municipal employees already showed during the height of the pandemic that we can work successfully from home. Mayor Adam's supported this concept when he was seeking our Union votes 🗳 during the Democratic primary.
When we work at home 🏡 we support our local economies. We have to pivot as we are losing talent from all city agencies to the private sector. We can reduce our office footprint and repurpose those buildings to deal with the homeless crisis we have in NYC. We can consolidate field offices and make those offices we use in a neighborhood style office space where you come in only when we have to gather for certain office tasks. We need the outer borough Mayor to remember his promises to Union members and our families that he would support an alternative work schedule 📅. Promises Made in this area have NOT been kept!! We need a Mayor who is going to make the public sector competitive and flexible for those who choose to serve NYC.
