MCCP (MTAM) B&C Revamp for 15-16: What changed and what stayed the same? 

For many MEA members, the City’s Management Classification and Compensation Program (MCCP) and its MTA equivalent (MTAM) remain a mystery despite being in the contract for nearly ten years. That is partially the result of the program being suspended during the recent economic downturn and partially the result of lack of consistency and transparency in how it has been administered. In 2014 bargaining we agreed to postpone the program for a year in order

to develop a more transparent process that would expand access for MEA members. The key changes are noted in the chart with additional history and detail provided below. Pre-2014/15  Post 2014/15  Intent 
Increased Transparency  No publication of timeline, application or guidelines Information and application provided to all MEA managers Increase awareness of process and criteria among MEA members
Increased Access  Department submissions only Department and Employee submissions Expand access and allow broader consideration of more candidates
Increased Funding  .50% of MEA Payroll 1% of MEA Payroll Additional funding for one-time allocations
Improved Data  No information on who the department declined to submit MEA to receive all submissions in addition to department recommendations Ability to analyze the reach of the program and to ensure it is being administered in a consistent and evenhanded manner
