CSEA, Cuomo Reach Contract Deal

June 24, 2017 
By Steven Wishnia and Neal Tepel

Albany, NY – The Civil Service Employees Association, New York’s biggest state workers’ union, has reached a tentative agreement with the state on a five-year contract.

The union’s about 60,000 mostly blue-collar workers had been working under an expired contract since March 2016. “CSEA and the Governor’s administration worked to produce a tentative agreement that is fair to public service workers and taxpayers alike,” union President Danny Donohue said June 21. If the contract is ratified, members are expected to get annual 2% raises, similar to the three-year deal the more white-collar Public Employees Federation got late last year. CSEA members with 15 years of continuous service will also get bonuses starting at $2,500 a year. Both unions’ previous contracts, agreed to in 2011 during the Great Recession, had included givebacks such as wage freezes and higher health-care costs. Their new agreements include protections against increases in the percentage of health-insurance costs workers have to pay. Read more
