Understanding the Dedicated Workforce

Standing Room Only

Even though the weather storm reports kept a majority of public away from attending the scheduled legislative meeting Tuesday night, numerous CSEA Unit  7400 member-activists were present in the chamber to again show the Legislators the resilience of the workforce.

Our issue remains that the County Administration will not take the responsibility to negotiate with the Team in a proper manner that would lead to an agreement that both parties could accept. There is a lack of understanding on their part that after two tentative agreements have failed to ratify, that the membership is not willing to accept any contract that will erode the basic benefit conditions of the previous contract which members fought so hard to achieve.

1/31/11 Mobilization Event
Until we can get some movement in negotiations from the Administration, all CSEA Unit 7400 members are urged to attend the monthly legislative meetings. When at the meeting, please take the time to introduce yourself to your legislator and explain to him or her why the services you perform are important to the community and why the lack of proper negotiations causes undue stressful working conditions. We also want members to sign up to address the legislature to speak about your personal experiences in which you have made the community better through your work.

Again, all County officials need to understand that the County workforce is not at all pleased with the way negotiations have been handled by the County. However, as professional employees, who are dedicated to the community we work for, we will do our part to give the community the best service possible and hope that the County Administration lives up to the commitments it has made to the people of this county.

Important dates to remember:

Thursday, February 17th, 5:30 - Unit 7400 Neg./Mobilization Taskforce Meeting, Rochester Satellite Office

Tuesday, March 8th, 5:45 - Monroe County Legislative Meeting, Monroe County Office Building

CSEA Unit 7400 Leadership thanks all members for their continued involvement and will continue to keep all members up to date on the contract situation.
