For more than 100 years, CSEA members have been fighting for working people through collective action – people working together – to get the job done.

These are no ordinary times. The middle class is suffering; wages are being cut, benefits denied and jobs privatized. There is a steady drumbeat of old, telling us that management dictates the rules of our work and we have no say in our conditions.

Union members know this is not true.

We know, we hold the power to turn it around through union organizing. We hold bargaining power that makes lasting changes in our lives and strengthens our communities. On the job, we’re passionate about the work we do. Whether we work for the Sanitation Dept., Highway Dept., Parks, Town Clerk or elsewhere in the Town, we’re proud to provide the services we all rely on every day to make our lives better.

Presidents Message

Theresa Kohutka

President, CSEA Local 880

Brothers and Sisters! I would like to give a big “Thank You” to all who helped with our election and to those who voted. We are devoted to our promises and look forward to working for you and with you for the next 4 years.

Speaking of 4 years… Congratulations on your new Collective Bargaining Agreement! The agreement runs from 2022-2025. And I can see from the ratification numbers that a high majority of you were pleased with the outcome.

As Autumn begins, I would like to remind you of the upcoming Health & Info fairs. Dates are as follows… Thursday, October 14, 2021 from 11am-1pm at Town Hall, and Wednesday, October 20, 2021 from 11am-1pm at Merrick Golf Course. Please stop by and meet some of our many vendors that can help you with anything from health coverage to mortgages. So take out the time to gather some information and giveaways.

The holidays are also coming up quickly and as long as the catering halls are open, we will be holding our Holiday Party. We will keep you posted over the next 2 months.

The Delta variant is a large topic of conversation lately and we want to remind you that if you haven’t received the vaccination, please try to practice social distancing and mask protocols. As always stay safe and be careful!
