CSEA Onondaga County Local 834 would like to thank County Executive McMahon and his team for being able to negotiate this tentative agreement with us in the midst of the Covid-19 crisis. Our members have served on the front lines of this pandemic since the beginning and will continue to help our communities during these difficult times. We still need the federal government to take action and provide the state and local government’s immediate aid. Without it, services that help our County run – that our members provide – will be negatively affected.CSEA Local 834 President Dan Vadala
