A06175 Memo:

BILL NUMBER:A6175

TITLE OF BILL:  An act to amend the civil service law, in relation to
mandatory arbitration

PURPOSE:  Include the New York Power Authority in the provisions
relating to compulsory arbitration to resolve impasses in collective
negotiations.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:  Amends Section 45 of Chapter 929 of the Laws
of 1986.

JUSTIFICATION:  Current provisions of Chapter 929 of the Laws of 1986
relate to compulsory arbitration to resolve impasses in collective
negotiations between an MTA public employer and a public employee
organization certified or recognized to represent employees of such
MTA public employer. This bill would add employees of the New York
Power Authority to those who receive such benefits. Compulsory
arbitration has allowed the people of New York to enjoy uninterrupted
service.  All evaluations of the effects of this law have been
positive and have advocated the continuation of this process.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:  2014 - S. 6304 - Finance Committee

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:  None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediate.

   15  member. This process shall be completed within five days of  receipt  of
   16  this  list.  The parties shall notify the board of the designated public
   17  member. The public member shall be chosen as chairman.
   18    S 2. This act shall take effect immediately; provided,  however,  that
   19  the  amendments made to paragraph (a) of subdivision 5 of section 209 of
   20  the civil service law by section one of this act shall  not  affect  the
   21  expiration of such subdivision and shall be deemed to expire therewith.
