Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today unveiled “Tax-Free NY,” a game-changing initiative that will transform SUNY campuses and university communities across the state into tax-free communities that attract start-ups, venture capital, new business, and investments from across the world.
The Taylor Law (particularly the Triborough Amendment provision) expires on July 1st. What should Gov. Cuomo do?
The so-called Triborough Amendment, passed in 1982, prohibited public employers from “refus[ing] to continue all the terms of an expired agreement until a new agreement is negotiated” unless – importantly – the union went on strike.
