Welcome to
PBA of New York State

 

After an extended period of dissatisfaction with incumbent union Council 82, stemming from unacceptable performance and professionalism including the inability to secure a contract since 2005, and the failure to include members of the negotiating team in discussions with the state, a majority of the ALES members filed a request with the New York State Public Employees Relations Board (PERB) seeking an election authorizing the PBA of New York State to represent them on matters ranging from contract negotiations, to legislative affairs, to local management of grievances.  The incumbent union, after seeing a concerted campaign for independence mounted by a determined leadership team and nearly unanimous rank-and-file membership, declined to go forward with a vote of the membership and conceded defeat.  The PBA of NYS was recognized by the New York Public Employment Relations Board as the exclusive bargaining agent of the PBA on August 19, 2011. 
 
On December 22, 2011, the PBA of NYS, after just four months in existence, secured a historic ten-year collective bargaining agreement that was ultimately ratified by 96% of the PBA membership.  The PBA continues enforcing the terms of that agreement and ensuring a safe and positive working environment for our members.

One-House Budget Bills would allow SUNY Police To Switch Pension Plans

Friday, March 13, 2015

Both the Assembly and Senate one-house budget bills provide funding that would give the SUNY police the option of transferring from the state Employees Retirees System into the state Police & Fire Retirement System, according to the state Police Benevolent Association, the union that represents campus police.

University police are the only law enforcement officers not covered by the P&F, says NYS PBA, which encourages SUNY police, once trained, to switch to law enforcement agencies that are part of P&F, which allows for earlier retirement.
