CSEA Unit 7400 President, Cris Zaffuto said, ''This is what we wanted to do all along, get back to negotiations, work to make a progressive agreement and we do want a real negotiation process to occur".
Overall, CSEA is hopeful that negotiations will move forward in a positive manner and create an agreement that gives the membership the stability they deserve. The membership has waited a long time and would like to see a positive end to the process.
Zaffuto said, I am glad that we are returning to negotiations to work out a contract that is financially proper for the workforce and fiscally proper for the residents of Monroe County, who our members work for". She continued. "Only by working together in a professional manner will all sides involved get what they truly deserve".
Even more importantly has been the resolve of the membership to attend legislative meetings; detailing the value of the work they do for the community and calling for aide to end the dispute and re-start negotiations. In that same spirit, the Unit 7400 Negotiating Team is calling on all members to come to the legislative meeting on the night of December 13th; showing support for all we have stood for and to show the Legislators the spirit of negotiating in good faith.
Important date to remember:
Tuesday, December 13th, 5:45 -Monroe County Legislative Meeting, Monroe County Office Building -wear your yellow CSEA t-shirt if you have one!
"We'll see you there!"
