About Us

McGuinness.  We are a public service union that represents 102 different court titles including, but not limited to, Senior Court Office Assistants, Court Revenue Assistants, Court Officers (all ranks below Chief), Senior Court Clerks, Court Attorneys, Court Reporters, et al. Our members work in the 1st District Court, Family Court, and Supreme Court in Central Islip, as well as County Court, Surrogates Court, Family Court, and Supreme Court in Riverhead.  We also have members working in Lindenhurst (2nd District Court), Huntington (3rd District Court), Hauppauge (4th District Court), Ronkonkoma (5th District Court), and Patchogue (6th District Court).

Established in 1978

Since its establishment, the Suffolk County Court Employees Association has been led by six Presidents: Tom McGuiness, Nick Galluzzi, Tom O’Neill, Chris Manning, Bill Dobbins, and Gerard Gwinn.  We are a diverse organization that has had many accomplishments and will continue to fight for the rights of all Suffolk County Court Employees. Our Association is dedicated to improving benefits and protecting the rights of all of our members.
