CONTRACT UPDATE
 
On Monday, September 18th, CSEA recommenced negotiations with representatives from the County of Erie, the Erie County Medical Center Corporation, Erie Community College, and the Erie County and Buffalo Library System for a successor collective bargaining agreement. This was the first bargaining session since the CSEA membership rejected the terms of a one (1) year tentative agreement for fiscal year 2017.
This initial bargaining session lasted around six and a half (6 ½) hours, and was marked by CSEA presenting a comprehensive package of over thirty (30) initial proposals for modifications to the current collective bargaining agreement. While the parties were successful in reaching some minor tentative agreements with respect to language changes that CSEA proposed, there is not a significant amount of progress to report.
The next bargaining session is scheduled for Tuesday, September 26, 2017 at 1:00pm. It is CSEA’s hope that the session will be productive, and that the parties will continue to discuss the multitude of contract proposals on the bargaining table in a productive way.
