Ontario County supervisors approve preliminary contract with sheriff’s office

The Ontario County Board of Supervisors has approved a preliminary collective bargaining agreement with the union representing many in the county sheriff’s office, who have been working without a new contract for over a year.

The agreement, which was unanimously approved at the board’s Tuesday meeting, spans January 1, 2021 to December 31, 2024. Details of the contract are yet to be revealed publicly.


The county Board of Supervisors, interim Sheriff Phil Povero, and leaders with the Ontario County Police Benevolent Association (PBA), and all took part in negotiations. The PBA represents 80 full and part-time officers.

“Morale has turned around in the sheriff’s office. It’s not necessarily where it needs to be, but it is on the upward trajectory,” said Supervisor Dave Baker, according to Finger Lakes Times. “This agreement is part of that — a CBA (collective bargaining agreement) that is a win-win for both sides.”
