The Cheektowaga Town Employees Association has declined to go along with a request from the Town Board that a 5 percent pay raise for town employees be postponed for three months.

Union employees considered the request during a membership meeting this week, Norbert Rutkowski, association president, said Wednesday. One concern is that the reduction of overtime in the town's 1991 budget will reduce the income of the typical sanitation worker by about $2,000, Rutkowski said.

The request to defer contracted raises from Jan. 1 to April 1 had been made of the bargaining units representing town employees to help the fiscal crunch caused by an expected sharp cut in state aid to the town.
