CSEA responds to settlement of Southern Region President’s leave time issue

For immediate release: January 18, 2019

Statement from CSEA President Danny Donohue regarding settlement of NYS Public Employment Relations Board (PERB) Improper Practice charge 

“I’m glad Rockland County has reached a resolution of the improper practice charge regarding CSEA’s Southern Region President Billy Riccaldo’s release time. I also want to thank the County Legislature for supporting Mr. Riccaldo and CSEA throughout this entire matter. As CSEA has always maintained, the Legislature’s role in passing the resolution did not violate Civil Service Law. In fact, all of CSEA’s other statewide officers who are local government employees have their leaves approved by the applicable legislative body.”
