CSEA Local Presidents along with CSEA Deputy Director of State Operations met with the OCA Labor Relations Director and her staff in NYC on Tuesday, June 18th to continue talks on a telecommuting pilot policy. It was another productive meeting with both sides in agreement on several aspects of the policy.   Both sides also agreed that implementing this policy as soon as practicable is a priority, therefore we scheduled our next meeting for July 3rd.   We are hoping to be able to share more details after that meeting. We thank you for your continued patience as we work together to bring our members the best pilot program we can.
