POUGHKEEPSIE — CSEA recently welcomed nearly 100 new members to the Dutchess County Unit after county officials brought county busing in-house following years of it being operated by a private contractor.

Union leaders and staff recently welcomed the new members to our union, providing them lunch and hosting an information day outside the Dutchess County Public Transit headquarters in Poughkeepsie.

Workers had the chance to learn about the many benefits CSEA offers on top of the union contract and also got to familiarize themselves with the benefits of entering the New York State Retirement System.
