ALBANY, NY — CSEA President Danny Donohue responded today to the tragic passing of Department of Transportation (DOT) worker Dennis “Matt” Howe.
 
“I am deeply saddened by the loss of Matt Howe, a hard-working DOT employee and CSEA member, who passed away as a result of injuries sustained when a tractor trailer collided with his DOT truck in a work zone on Route 17 in Tioga County.  CSEA’s Occupational Safety and Health Department is actively investigating the incident.
 
This tragic incident highlights the risks so many CSEA members face every day. This serves as a strong and powerful reminder that we all need to do our part and drive carefully through work zones so our hard-working public employees can return safely to their families and loved ones after every shift. DOT employees are some of the most vulnerable workers, and every one of us needs to help ensure their safety.
 
On behalf of all of CSEA, I extend my deepest condolences to Matt’s family and loved ones.”

CSEA HeadshotsCSEA President Danny Donohue’s Statement on Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s 2019-20 State Budget Proposal
ALBANY, NY — Civil Service Employees Association (CSEA) President Danny Donohue responded to Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s 2019-20 state budget proposal with the following statement:

“We applaud Governor Cuomo for continuing to stand with working people and organized labor in this year’s budget. The Governor took swift action last year after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled against unions in the Janus decision and immediately moved to protect the personal information of state employees from anti-union forces to prevent state employees from being harassed at their homes and worksites.

Now the Governor is proposing to extend these crucial protections to all public employees in the state of New York. The Governor’s actions in proposing this legislation is further proof of his strong support for labor at a time when corporate CEOs and billionaires are trying to destroy unions.”
