Deputies union has contract proposal in Wayne County: Will they accept it?

The Union representing deputies in Wayne County are reviewing a contract proposal.


The proposal comes after two sessions with a Public Employee Relations Board mediator who was appointed after Teamsters 118 declared an impasse last September.

Wayne County Administrator Rick House told the Finger Lakes Times he’s “guardedly optimistic” that a deal could come soon or, at a minimum, that progress is being made towards a new agreement.

The union has been working under an expired contract that ended at the end of 2021. County officials have been criticized by union members and supporters for not offering better pay for deputies, and the deputies want to retire with full pension benefits at 20 years, which is currently 25 years.
