Westchester Medical Center has informed us of a payroll glitch for this pay period. Pay stubs will be showing negative vacation hours, however the correct hours are accurate in the system. Hours will be corrected in the September 20th pay stub. If anyone has any questions or concerns, they can contact their timekeeper or Payroll. Sorry for any inconvenience.

*****Contract Negotiations*****

Just a quick update to let everyone know that my board and I are working diligently with our lead negotiator.  We have our proposals ready to submit to management.  Now that summer vacations have winded down, we are hoping to meet with management in the near future.  Please share this information with other members and encourage them to create an account for this website for any updates.

Thank you for your continued support and have a great labor Day weekend!

In solidarity,

Sue Fontana, President CSEA Unit 9201


Update of Traumatic Incident on 8/8/18

I would like to inform our membership, as well as ALL hospital employees, that a meeting did take place today with management.  Not only CSEA, but NYSNA and CIR representatives met with the Chief Security Officer, the Systems Director of Emergency Management, as well as Labor Relations, for a follow up of last weeks incident.  All of our issues and concerns were voiced and we demanded immediate action be taken and insisted weekly meetings be held to address communication, response, training, and hospital access.  We are in the process of setting up a meeting next week and will be making this a priority.

I will keep you updated after our next meeting.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please call the CSEA office at 914-493-7069

A big THANK YOU to my Executive Board, Attorney Nathaniel Charny,(Charny & Wheeler) and CSEA Inc.for the amazing job that led to an amazing victory!  We won the Class Action against WMC for the astronomical increase in co pays and out of pocket expenses.  The award letter from the arbitrator states “the Corporation shall make adversely affected employees whole by reimbursement of the costs in excess of five percent incurred by the employee because of the adopted plan design changes”

I will update with any information as I get it in regards to reimbursement.

Continue to remain UNION STRONG!!!

In solidarity,

Susan Fontana, President CSEA Unit 9201
