Labor Agreement Ratified with Deputy Sheriff’s Association

Thursday, February 4, 2016

The Tompkins County Legislature, by unanimous vote, ratified a new six-year collective bargaining agreement with the Tompkins County Deputy Sheriff’s Association. The agreement spans the period from March 2010 through the end of 2016, and contains all terms and conditions of employment previously awarded or agreed upon through a series of previous interest arbitration awards and fact-finding recommendations agreed upon by the parties, going back to 2004—in part, incorporating all as part of a single up-to-date collective bargaining agreement. The new agreement provides some wage growth and health cost containment.

Budget, Capital, and Personnel Committee Chair Jim Dennis recognized Association president Pete Walker and Undersheriff Brian Robison for all their work that led to achieving the contract. “Pete and Brian did a ton of work to get this contract where it is now,” he said. “I think the County is doing very well with this contract, and I hope the membership feels similarly.”
