OMG! A couple of inches of snow and now he is knee jerking like a panting weatherman hoping for a hurricane. Did you grow up in Florida or California?

yes, another success story for CSEA. And now they are going to represent the members of the new employer? They failed the first time, they will fail this time, and the only noise you will hear is the sign toting screaming at cars that also never works.

Schenectady is next, where the local is even worse than the parent organization!

What a waste of time and money. Put the money into the store and it's employees. Mr Golub can't think of a better way to spend 330 million?

The salaried employees who watched all of the hourly employees get laid off numerous times now get to feel the sword of Generous Electric. Local 301 will never accept the same fate as the "sheep" that slept in the office protected from lay off all those years.

Walk the line 301. There are allot of us ex-hourly employees out there who will stand beside you. And the salaried will still try to get through the picket lines!

Here is a question. Do we want Glenville running the Village too? If you think this group will reduce your taxes I have some fresh swamp land for sale.

I would be suspicious of anyone running for a trustee seat, with absolutely no experience, that makes a comment that reducing the tax burden below the cap is easily met. I would however put money on a bet that they have only recently, (if ever) attended a village board meeting.

The current team led by Mayor Kastberg has been doing a good job for the residents of Scotia. His team makes Scotia the nice place it is to live and raise our children.

Another step back! Once again, New Yorks Premier Worst Union has negotiated downward again. Reducing the health coverage, no raise, and then a paltry offering of 1 or 2 per cent.

Sounds like they are following the retreat and total ineffectiveness of CSEA Local 885 in the County. Reduce the health plan with higher co-pays, offering no raise, followed by raises below the cost of living.

For the County retirees, get ready for the same plan offerings that GE is giving their retirees.

When did mediocrity become so acceptable?

That is ridiculous. Passing on your expenses to Village residences who pay crippling taxes as it is will penalize those least able to take on more of a burden.

Maybe if the the town stopped re-employing retired recycled employees from their own and other municipalities their overhead would be more manageable.

Gee, one of them wants to be the Mayor of Scotia! Pay attention residents, the Trojan horse is at the door!
