BILL:

S.8223 (Espada) / A.11569 (Rules)

Support

SUBJECT:

Expansion of labor law provisions for farm employees

 

DATE:

June 28, 2010

 

This bill would amend the labor law and require collective bargaining, overtime and disability for farm employees. The Business Council supports the New York Farm Bureau in its opposition to these proposals.

For these reasons, The Business Council opposes this legislation and respectfully urges that it not be enacted by the New York State Legislature.
