CARMEL, NY –Putnam County Executive Kevin Byrne announced the successful conclusion of negotiations with one of the County’s four collective bargaining units. On December 15, 2023, County Executive Byrne signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) for the Putnam Management Association (PuMA) alongside PuMA President Shawn Rogan. Five days later (Dec 20) the MOA was approved in a unanimous vote by PuMA members. The agreement covers compensation, benefits, holidays, and other items related to the PuMA covered public employees through December 31st 2027.

“This four-year agreement reflects the dedication of both parties to fostering a positive work environment, ensuring the well-being of county employees, and our mutual commitment to fiscal responsibility,” said County Executive Byrne. “This is a fair and responsible contract for both our public employees and our taxpayers. I thank the members of our respective negotiating teams for all their hard work at the negotiation table. We look forward to building on this important progress as we seek to complete negotiations with our other remaining collective bargaining units.”

“Our negotiations went quite smoothly and swiftly because each party had respectful and realistic expectations that resulted in a fair and reasonable outcome,” said Rogan. “Our members are vital to the efficient operation of county services and this contract reflects their dedication and hard work. We believe this contract is great for our members but also will help us to enhance the quality of services provided to Putnam County residents.”
