NORWICH – Members of Chenango County’s Personnel Committee set a record Wednesday for the longest executive session held so far this year: 64 minutes.
The topic was a discussion of labor unions’ terms and conditions, and the salary levels of the three positions that would be needed for the county’s proposed $380,000 fly car program. Chenango County’s rank-and-file employees fall under one of three unions: the Chenango County Law Enforcement Association, the Sheriff’s Employees Association, Inc. and the Civil Services Employees Association.
Afterward, the committee agreed to create an emergency medical services supervisor at $20.23 per hour and two technicians at $14.03 an hour within the CSEA bargaining unit. The employees would report to the Chenango County Emergency Management Office at the Public Safety Building in the Town of Norwich.
