The Civil Service Employees Association is making one final plea to the county legislature as legislators prepare to vote on freezing union pay for one year.
CSEA has had several failed attempts at negotiation with the county over a new union contract for county workers. The county has proposed a two-tier pay system that would pay new hires 10-percent less. The union has rejected that proposal. Now, it has boiled down to a resolution from the legislature to freeze county worker’s pay rates – and the resolution will be voted on tonight.
CSEA Union spokeswoman Lynn Miller today released a statement from the union, asking legislature to table the resolution and allow further negotiations on the matter.
The County Legislature meets at 7pm at the Old County Courthouse.
