Orange County settles contracts with two sheriff’s unions

GOSHEN – Orange County has entered into a memorandum of understanding settling contracts with the county Corrections Officers Benevolent Association and the Superior Officers Association.

Both contracts are set to expire at the end of the year. The new contracts will run from January 1, 2018 to December 31, 2022. Both unions have agreed to the same terms with respect to wages – 1.95 percent in 2018 and two percent in each year 2019 through 2022.               

Both unions voted to ratify terms of the agreements.

County Executive Steven Neuhaus termed the pacts “fair and equitable contracts for county government and for the employees of the sheriff’s office.”

Rafael Marquez, president of the Corrections Officers Benevolent Association said they had “meaningful, no nonsense negotiations” with the administration.
