State Employee1Whether it’s at the state capital in Albany, New York City, Buffalo, Syracuse, Long Island or the Hudson Valley, CSEA members literally keep New York state running every day.
Health care workers provide direct, quality care to people with developmental disabilities, people with mental illnesses and people with nowhere else to get quality health care; transportation workers plow our highways and repair our roads to ensure we travel safely; clerical workers keep oState Employee2ur public offices running smoothly; court workers help keep our courts safe. These are just a few of the examples of how thousands of CSEA members working for New York state touch our lives every day.
State employees cemented the foundation of our union when a group of state workers formed the Association of State Civil Service Employees on Oct. 24, 1910. More than 100 years later, the Civil Service Employees Association (as the association was renamed in 1946) also serves local government, school district and private sector employees, and is one of the largest, most influential unions in the United States.
