Annotation: This committee report suggests legislative proposals for protecting the public against the disruption of public services in New York by illegal strikes.
Abstract: The committee recommends that the Condon-Wadlin Law, which banned strikes by public employees, be repealed and replaced by a statute which would grant public employees the right of organization and representation; empower the State and local governments and other political subdivisions to recognize, negotiate with, and enter into written agreements with employee organizations representing public employees; create a public employment relations board to assist in resolving disputes between public employees and public employers; and continue the prohibition against strikes by public employees while providing remedies for violations of such prohibition. Upon certification, employee organizations should be entitled to the right to represent employees in negotiations and grievance procedures, the right to collect membership dues, and the right to unchallenged representation status for a certain period. In the event of an impasse during collective negotiations, the Public Employment Relations Board should institute mediation procedures to assist the parties in resolving their dispute. Additional recommendations are mentioned, and footnotes and an appendix presenting a discussion of patterns of collective negotiations are included.
