Every CSEA-represented Judiciary employee is entitled to apply for this monetary benefit. The enrollment period runs from 1/15/18 through 3/15/18. Each CSEA member has been mailed a letter containing instructions for completing the registration process. Follow the instructions in the letter carefully and be certain to get a confirmation. There have been some issues with the portal being down, but it is up and running again at this time.
AFSCME may be calling you! In light of the challenges all Unions will face in 2018 in view of a decision in the Janus v. AFSCME case in the U.S. Supreme Court, AFSCME, our “parent” union, will be reaching out to members regarding tele-town hall meetings to keep us updated on Janus and the Freedom Foundation and other anti-union group activities. Keep informed – this will affect every Union and Union member across the nation.
Thank you to all of the volunteers across our 20 counties of the Local for assisting in the distribution of the printed contracts. Now that that process is complete, any new employees will be sent a printed contract with their welcome packet from the Local once their membership application has been approved.

REMINDER - LOCAL 334 PHONE/FAX NUMBER
The Local will discontinue utilizing the 1-800-498-0334 phone/fax number as of mid-February. Over the last couple of years, there have been very few faxes sent and very rarely are any messages left on the answering machine. Scan/email seems to be the easiest method of communication. Members have access to all of the Local officers’ email addresses as listed on our web site. Members may email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message at my office number (315) 266-4238.
