Arthur Cusano is reporting in the Register Star the Columbia County Board of Supervisors okayed three new labor agreements with county unions, Mon., Dec. 29. Memorandums of agreement were ratified for new contracts with sheriff’s deputies, corrections officers and county employees in the United Public Service Employees Union. A fourth contract with the Columbia County 911 employees union was approved by the board earlier this month. The contracts will be retroactive to Jan. 1, 2014. The agreements do not include raises for 2014, but will include wage hikes in 2015 and 2016. Although the memorandums of understanding were approved Monday, the specific terms of each contract must be finalized. Union representatives expect that process to take a few weeks.
