Monroe County CSEA has worked with the County to limit the layoffs in the Monroe County workforce this year. Vacant positions continue to remain unfilled which only hampers the work force's ability to serve the public. However, living without the fear of potential layoffs is critically important to all workers.
Statement of CSEA President Danny Donohue on threatened layoffs of CSEA-represented Thruway Authority and Canal Corporation employees
"Governor Andrew Cuomo needs to understand that threatening layoffs, putting dedicated workers out on the street and undermining the state Thruway and Canal operations is a lousy way to promote a jobs agenda.
The governor should stop blaming workers for every situation and knock off the strong-arm tactics. He needs to keep people working if he wants any credibility on economic development."
