Union contracts give Public Works raises

Friday, May 13, 2016

The Babylon Village Board this week approved union contracts bringing raises and higher minimum wages for about 45 Public Works employees. 

The contract with CSEA Local 1000 will reverse a years long drain, Mayor Ralph Scordino and union labor relations specialist Jay Diaz said in separate interviews.

The contract for Part time workers, who unionized in January, brings an automatic raise of $2 per hour and sets a minimum $10 hourly wage.  An extended contract for full-time workers brings a $4-per-hour raise and sets a minimum wage of $10.50 per hour, higher for those with experience and commercial driver’s licenses.  Both agreements run to 2020.
