Something BIG is happening in Monroe County

A large number of Monroe County CSEA Members met Thursday September 30th to find out what they could do to help the negotiation process. In addition to this meeting, mobilization meetings will be held throughout the county to share information on negotiations and to mobilize CSEA members in the fight to get a fair contract.

Negotiations are at a standstill as the County has taken a right turn and proposed moving all employees into a Health Insurance product with extremely high out-of-pocket costs. If you would like a copy of the County’s “proposed” health insurance plan, please contact the union office.

CSEA members need to get involved with the negotiation process as it is essential to move forward united, if we hope to get a fair agreement. Over the next few months, we will be holding additional meetings and other activities throughout the county which will be focused on getting a fair contract. A Mobilization Steering Committee is forming to head up the effort to get a fair contract. Please contact your Union Steward or the CSEA Office to find out how you can get more involved.

The County has taken a very draconian position in these negotiations. Their unreasonable stand has been met by the Union’s firm resolve to get a fair and just settlement. CSEA remains willing to meet with the County at the time and place of their choosing to enter into serious negotiations. However, the Union will not be bullied into accepting unfair concessions that drag the employees of Monroe County backwards.

We truly believe; together, we can make a difference. Always remember the following:

Divided We Beg

CSEA Officers meet with Michael Ottaviano CSEA Mobilization Specialist to discuss the
mobilization efforts in Monroe County 

For information on how you can get involved with the fight for a 
fair contract, call the CSEA Unit 7400 Office at (585) 328-5250.
