Paragraph (b) of subdivision 4 of section 209-a of the civil service law, as added by chapter 695 of the laws of 1994, is amended to read as follows: (b) Within ten WORKING days of the receipt by the board of such peti- tion, if the board determines that a charging party has made a suffi- cient showing both that there is reasonable cause to believe an improper practice has occurred and it appears that immediate and irreparable injury, loss or damage will result thereby rendering a resulting judg- ment on the merits ineffectual necessitating maintenance of, or return to, the status quo to provide meaningful relief, the board shall peti- tion the supreme court, in Albany county, upon notice to all parties for the necessary injunctive relief or in the alternative may issue an order permitting the charging party to seek injunctive relief by petition to the supreme court, in which case the board must be joined as a necessary party. The board or, where applicable, the charging party, shall not be required to give any undertakings or bond and shall not be liable for any damages or costs which may have been sustained by reason of any injunctive relief ordered. If the board fails to act within ten days as provided herein, the board, for purposes of review, shall be deemed to have made a final order determining not to seek injunctive relief. S 2. This act shall take effect immediately, provided, however, that the amendment to subdivision 4 of section 209-a of the civil service law made by section one of this act shall not affect the repeal of such subdivision and shall be deemed repealed therewith.
