Agreement will keep Country Manor in Herkimer open

By WKTV News

(WKTV) - A last-minute deal between Civil Service Employees Association and Advanced Healthcare Management will save Country Manor Adult Care Facility in Herkimer from being closed.

The Herkimer County Legislature had threatened to shut down the nursing home at 5 p.m. Friday unless an agreement over future operations was reached.

The agreement between CSEA and Advanced Healthcare Management provides for all current employees to continue employment with the new owner at their current salaries.

Advanced Healthcare Management has also agreed to recognize CSEA as the collective bargaining agent for the workers and the union said negotiations will begin shortly over workers' terms and conditions of employment.
