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.

Law Dedicated to the Late DEC Lt. John Fitzpatrick Establishes Tougher Penalties to Prevent Illegal Sales, Barter or Purchase of Ivory Articles

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today signed a new law to prevent the trade of illegal ivory articles by strengthening criminal and civil penalties for buyers and sellers whose actions are endangering elephant populations worldwide. The law bans the sale of elephant and mammoth ivory and rhinoceros horns, with limited exceptions for products such as antiques demonstrated to be at least 100 years old and containing only a small amount of ivory. The adoption of these stricter sanctions is a major step to deter the ivory trade in the U.S. and protect important species.
