Jones is March PEOPLE Recruiter of the Month


LOCKPORT — Niagara Department of Transportation Local President Jimmy Jones is the PEOPLE Recruiter of the Month for March. Jones recruited 26 new PEOPLE members.

“Our members understand the value of being able to collectively bargain,” said Jones. “Asking my co-workers to join wasn’t a difficult conversation to have. Every benefit that comes our way is because of our union negotiating with our employer and they appreciate that. Joining the PEOPLE program is only a few bucks a paycheck, and it really pays dividends for us down the road.”

CSEA’s PEOPLE program protects and improves our jobs, benefits and pensions in Washington, Albany and in your community. Your support and participation in PEOPLE strengthens CSEA’s clout in the workplace, in the legislature, in your community and in the labor movement.
