EMPLOYEE ORGANIZATION AND UNIONIZATION IN NEW YORK STATE

THE HISTORY OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE COLLECTIVE BARGAINING PROCESS IN THE NEW YORK STATE GOVERNMENT, WHICH DATES BACK TO 1945, IS DESCRIBED. BEGINNING WITH THE CONDON-WADLIN ACT OF 1947, WHICH PROHIBITED STRIKES BY PUBLIC EMPLOYEES, A CHRONOLOGICAL PRESENTATION OF IMPORTANT LAWS, ORDERS, ETC., IS MADE. THE FOLLOWING TOPICS ARE THEN DISCUSSED: (1) THE DETERMINATION OF NEGOTIATING UNIT REPRESENTATION; (2) RECENT STRIKES; (3) THE ORGANIZATION OF AND INCIDENTS INVOLVING DOT; (4) STATEWIDE AND DEPARTMENTAL NEGOTIATIONS; (5) PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZATIONS; (6) THE GRIEVANCE PROCEDURE; AND (7) FEDERAL LEGISLATION. IT IS NOTED THAT UNIONIZATION OF SUPERVISORS AND MIDDLE MANAGEMENT PERSONNEL CAUSES SERVICE STRAIN WHEN, DURING LABOR CONTROVERSIES, THEY ARE EXPECTED TO BE LOYAL TO BOTH THE UNION AND MANAGEMENT. IT IS ALSO SUGGESTED THAT THE NEAR FUTURE WILL PROBABLY SEE AN INCREASE IN UNIONIZATION AND A WIDENING OF THE GAP BETWEEN EMPLOYEE AND EMPLOYER.
