Notwithstanding the provisions of any general or special law to the contrary, the state retirement board shall consider the following former employees of the commonwealth as having been active employees for the purpose of eligibility for the early retirement incentive program as set forth in chapter 22 of the acts of 1992 and who would have been eligible for said program but for the commonwealth's implementation of reduction in force procedures prior to the effective date of said chapter 22: Virginia Campbell, Jeanette Elwood, Natalie Freilich-Messier, Stanley Glick, Henry Grunebaum, Mary O'Connor and Edith Watson; provided, however, that the provisions of this act and the benefits created herein shall be available only to the aforementioned employees who would otherwise have been employed and eligible for said program but for their retirement, resignation or layoff as a consequence of such reduction in force procedures and shall be in lieu of any and all claims against the commonwealth for monetary damages or any award thereof as a result of rulings and remedial orders issued by the state labor relations commission on November 20, 1991 in SUP-3426 and on August 21, 1992 in SUP-3475; and provided, further, that if any of said employees have accepted recall or have been rehired or reemployed by the commonwealth, they shall not be eligible for said program.
