The IBEW Utility Labor Council of NYS, representing 15,000 members statewide strongly supports the above legislation. This bill is intended to make the process of joining a union less complicated for public employees. In addition, there are several different practices to become a member of a union among the various government agencies. This legislation clarifies and streamlines the membership process and procedures by eliminating the varying practices that could result in less than effective union representation of an employee.
For these reasons, we urge the state legislature to pass this bill. For more information please contact Glen Casey, Legislative Representative at (518)- 331-8837.
