Port Authority moves to curb unions' bargaining powers

Lee Adler, a faculty member of Cornell University’s ILR School who teaches public sector collective bargaining, said the Port Authority statement was “double-talk.” He reviewed the language in the resolution at The Record’s request.

“It sounds to me that they were essentially trying to eliminate the opportunity for union employees to have a voice in the way health care is administered, while trying to make the public think that collective bargaining will remain the same,” he said. He noted that Cuomo has “claimed he has no intention of harming public employees’ right to collective bargaining.”
