BILL NUMBER:S7095B

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the civil service law, in relation to providing for limitations on binding arbitration for members of the state police; and to repeal certain provisions of such law relating thereto

PURPOSE:

This bill would enact a chapter amendment to provide certain limitations on the binding arbitration rights granted to members of the Agency Police Services Unit by Chapter 587 of the laws of 2004.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

This bill would enact a chapter amendment to Chapter 587 of the laws of 2001, which granted binding arbitration rights to members of the Agency Police Services Unit. Specifically, this bill would amend paragraph e of subdivision 4 of section 209 of the civil service law and paragraph f of subdivision 4 of section 209 of the civil service law, to provide that with regard to members of the Agency Police Services Unit who are sworn Police officers in the state university police, state environmental police, state park police and state forest rangers, the provisions of the Civil Service law which grant binding arbitration rights to such members of the Agency Police Services Unit shall include issues relating to salary, stipends, location pay, insurance, as well as medical and hospitalization but shall not apply to issues relating to job security, disciplinary procedures, scheduling, and investigations or eligibility and assignment to details and positions, which would be governed by any other provisions proscribed by law.

EXISTING LAW:

This bill would limit the scope of binding arbitration provisions for members of the Agency Police Services Unit. Specifically, binding arbitration would not apply to issues relating to disciplinary procedures and investigations or eligibility and assignment to detail and positions.

JUSTIFICATION:

At the time of the signing for Chapter 587 of the laws of 2001, which granted binding arbitration rights to members of the Agency Police Services Unit, it was decided by all interested parties that this law should be clarified so as to limit these rights so granted to not include disciplinary procedures and investigation or eligibility and assignment to details and positions. Binding arbitration has proven most effective resolving monetary disputes of collective bargaining.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

New Bill

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect immediately.
