Workplace Issues Today: Paterson orders labor peace agreements on state funded projects

New York Governor David Paterson issued an order that requires projects receiving funds or assistance from State agencies to incorporate labor peace agreements with unions trying to organize project workers. The order will make it easier for unions to potentially organize thousands of workers on New York’s largest projects, including hotel projects in Niagara Falls, Nassau County, and Manhattan. The peace agreements would prevent strikes, boycotts and disruptive actions on the part of unions, but also provide unions with added leverage from which to demand right-to-organize measures such as card-check.
