CSEA MONROE COUNTY EMPLOYEES REJECT CONTRACT OFFER
On October 13, a majority of members of CSEA Unit 7400 (Local 828) voted to reject the terms and conditions of a new labor agreement that was tentatively signed on September 13. The official results are as follows– 377 voted yes and 463 members voted no.
The ratification vote was a mail-in secret ballot issued from September 22 to October 6. The contract vote was tallied this evening starting at 6:00 pm at the CSEA Rochester Satellite Office at Winton Place. Approximately 1,700 CSEA-represented workers have been working under the language of the previous four-year contract that expired in December 2013.
On behalf of myself and the Contract Action Team, we want to take a moment to assure you we are doing everything in our power to deliver on our promise of a fair contract. Although the tentative agreement did not pass this evening, we are moving in the right direction. Our first and next order of business will be to survey our members and document feedback to figure out the best path forward. Let me be perfectly clear– we are committed to reaching an agreement that is respectful to employees and taxpayers alike.
Any questions, comments or concerns about future negotiations with our employer can be directed to our CSEA Unit 7400 office located at 1354 Buffalo Road, Ste 6, Rochester, NY 14624. You can call mornings at 585-328-5250. For media inquiries, please contact Ove Overmyer at 585-354-1613.
