Full-Time Civil Service


The Town of Union complies with the New York State Civil Service Law and regulations. Job titles are arranged within five (5) different classifications: Unclassified, Exempt, Labor, Non-Competitive, and Competitive.

Job titles that are classified as Competitive require applicants to compete in an examination process.  The process includes an applicant meeting the minimum qualifications for the title, and completing all components of the examination itself.  In order to be considered for permanent employment, candidates must place among the top 3 scores, and interview successfully. Civil Service examinations and appointments are filled from the  Broome County Personnel lists of eligible persons.

The Broome County Personnel web page provides access to exam announcements, applications and information you will need to know about taking civil service exams, as well as other useful employment related information.

Enrollment into the New York State Local Retirement System is Mandatory for all Full-Time Employees for all employees who were hired on, or after July 27th, 1976. For More information regarding the New York State Local Retirement System, click here
