 BILL NUMBER:  S1406

TITLE OF BILL : An act to amend the civil service law, in relation to extending the effectiveness of provisions establishing dispute resolution during collective negotiations

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL : The purpose of this legislation is to amend paragraph d, 4, Section 209 of the Civil Service Law, as amended by Chapter 57 of the Laws of 2003 to read: The provisions of this subdivision shall expire 30 years from July first, 1977 rather than 28 years from that date.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS : Paragraph d of subdivision 4, Section 209 of the Civil Service Law, as amended by Chapter 57 of the Laws of 2003 is amended to extend the expiration date of the provisions for an additional two years or until July 1, 2011.

JUSTIFICATION : Compulsory arbitration has allowed the people of New York to enjoy uninterrupted fire and police protection since 1973. All evaluations of the effects of this law have been positive and have advocated the continued use of this process. There have been no significant increases or decreases in settlements due to the use of arbitration as opposed to settling prior to the issue of an arbitration award. In other words, there is no advantage for either party in carrying the process to its final end.

This legislation is necessary to extend binding arbitration for an additional two years to continue to provide for peaceful settlement of disputes.

Chapter 123 of the Laws of 1995

Chapter 57 of the Laws of 2003
