Union pickets shadow Chautauqua County legislators meeting Wednesday night

MAYVILLE – A union informational picket in front of the Gerace Office Building greeted 19 members of the Chautauqua County Legislature on hand for their July meeting Wednesday evening.

About 50 members of the CSEA Unit 6300 walking along Route 394, oustide the main doors to the building, also distributed information about contract negotiations – in particular, health coverage. The union leaflets said the county could save about $1.5 million a year through a new contract with Univera, the county’s current health-care provider. The union information also accused Chautauqua County Executive Vince Horrigan of refusing to negotiate new terms.
