Monroe Co., Road Patrol Union strike deal on contract
Rochester, N.Y. - After years without a contract, Monroe County and the Sheriff's Road Patrol Union have ratified a new five-year collective bargaining agreement.
It affects the wages and benefits of 255 employees in the Sheriff's Office.
The agreement still needs approval from the County Legislature.
In a statement released Thursday, Monroe County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo said, “Monroe County is very pleased to reach this mutually beneficial agreement and I thank the members of the PBA for showing what we can accomplish when everyone comes to the table. The men and women of the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office serve our community, every day, with dedication and they are recognized as the preeminent law enforcement agency in the State. I believe this is a fair and equitable settlement that meets the needs of the deputies and is fiscally responsible to the taxpayers of Monroe County.”
