NEWS: CSEA AND THE COUNTY TO MEET IN NEGOTIATIONS
"Since the County has taken a hard and consistent stance against retroactive pay for any bargaining unit in Monroe County, it is imperative that we keep working for a settlement" said CSEA Labor Relations Specialist Robert Leonard.
CSEA has worked hard to reach an agreement with the County and will continue those efforts. CSEA declared impasse in these negotiations and a mediator was appointed by the Public Employment Relations Board to work with the parties. If additional attempts at negotiations fail, the parties can make a request to PERB to go to Fact-finding. CSEA sincerely hopes that the parties can reach an agreement and it will not be necessary to go to the Fact-finding step in the negotiation process.
