The ratified contract includes raises in each year of the agreement of 2% for the first two years and 3% for the remaining three years.
In addition, the contract includes other increases in compensation - such as a one-time lump sum bonus of $3,000 and changes in longevity as a result of modifications in the health insurance program.
The contract also includes funding of Labor-Management Committees.
CSEA President Mary Sullivan said: “I would again like to thank our Negotiating Team for their hard work and dedication to delivering this new state contract. The agreement was overwhelmingly ratified by our membership and across all four of our Executive Branch Bargaining Units.”
Governor Kathy Hochul said: “This contract fairly compensates the hard-working men and women of the Civil Service Employees Association who help to deliver critical services to New Yorkers every day. I thank President Sullivan for her partnership in getting this agreement over the finish line and ensuring that it acknowledges the valuable contributions of CSEA Members to our great State.”
