BILL NUMBER:S1265

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the civil service law,
in relation to the collective bargaining process for certain
peace officers and special officers

PURPOSE:
(1). This bill would amend section 212 of the Civil Service law to
provide that for all collective negotiations to which the City of New
York is a participant with the Department of Education of the City of
New York, the NYC Health and Hospitals Corporation, the NYC Housing
Authority, or the City University of New York, the negotiations shall
be conducted with the employee organization certified to represent
the peace officers and special officers employed by the foregoing
entities.
(2). The bill provides that pursuant to NYC Administrative Code
Section 12-307 (4) (i) negotiations for employees of the Fire
Department of the City of, New York in the job title, Supervisors of
Blasting, shall be conducted in the manner described above.

JUSTIFICATION:
Section 12-307 (4) (i) of the New York City Administrative Code was
recently amended to provide that peace officers and special officers
employed by New York City agencies represented by an employee
organization in collective bargaining shall have the same right as
police, firefighters, other Fire Department employees, and NYC
correction officers to bargain directly with the City of New York
over all matters, including but not limited to, overtime and time and
leave matters. The agencies covered by this bill that would be
afforded similar treatment with respect to collective bargaining
process are not City agencies, but rather are State created entities,
not subject to such provision of the Administrative Code. To maintain
consistent collective bargaining process treatment of all peace
officers and special officers involved in bargaining where the City
of New York is a participant, this amendment to the Civil Service Law
is necessary. The Administrative Code amendment corrects an
inadvertent omission of a job title in the recent amendment to the
Code previously described.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2009-2010: S.3538 - Passed the Senate
2008: S.6882 - Vetoed Memo No. 29

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None. This bill confers no wage or benefit increases. It merely
standardizes collective bargaining procedures for all peace officer
and special officer employee organizations engaged in bargaining
where the City of New York is a participant.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
