CONTRACT UPDATE
 
On Wednesday, November 8, 2017, CSEA and the County of Erie met for our fourth bargaining session since the recommencement of contract negotiations on September 18, 2017. 

While the parties engaged in bargaining for approximately six hours during this latest session, unfortunately there is very little progress to report out of this bargaining session. 

While the County did provide a number of responses to several of CSEA’s non-economic and minor economic contract proposals, their responses were underwhelming to say the least. The County’s bargaining team appeared to be unprepared, and their responses/proposals seemed to be slapped together at the last minute. 

Further compounding CSEA’s frustration over the pace and productivity of bargaining to this point, the County actually brought a new contract proposal to the table regarding the use of sick leave days before and after holidays. 

CSEA’s bargaining team made it very clear to the County’s team that we were extremely frustrated with what appeared to be the County’s lack of preparation and seriousness about this session. 

CSEA presented every one of our proposals for modifications to the collective bargaining agreement during our first bargaining session on September 18, 2017, as it was our hope to start tackling all of the issues on the bargaining table right away and in a productive manner. 

The County has presented their proposals in a piecemeal manner, slowing down both the pace and productivity of bargaining. 

Our next bargaining session is scheduled for November 27, 2017, and after the frank discussion that occurred during this most recent session, we hope to see a County bargaining team that is fully prepared and serious about engaging in good faith and productive bargaining.
