MAYVILLE - Greg Edwards has been waiting nearly 11 months for a list of proposals from union officials to save the County Home.
On Thursday, Nov. 29, less than 30 days prior to the county legislature's review of the contract to sell the County Home to Altitude Health Services, Inc., the union responded to Edwards' request to negotiate.
"CSEA is requesting that negotiations for terms and conditions of employment for employees at the Chautauqua County Nursing Home be separated from negotiations for the remainder of the Chautauqua County Employee Unit 6300," noted Penny Gleason, labor relations specialist. "This request is predicated upon full funding of the County Home (including IGT match) and implementation of other cost-saving and revenue enhancing recommendations made in the Center for Governmental Research report."
The CSEA employees union has until Wednesday, Dec. 12 to negotiate for terms and conditions of employment for employees at the Chautauqua County Nursing Home. Additionally, the Chautauqua County Legislature will review the contract to sell the home to Altitude Health Services, Inc., for $16.5 million on Wednesday, Dec. 19.
