(d) `labour peace agreement` means an agreement between the contractor and a work organisation representing a considerable number of hotel or congress centre staff in the State, which requires that the work organisation and its members not carry out work activities that disrupt the operation of the hotel, including strikes, boycotts, work stoppages, company campaigns, pickets or other economic measures against the covered project. The legal status of these laws and possible conflicts with, for example, the National Labor Relations Act depend heavily on the details of their decree. According to the theory that the government, like any other market player, is nothing more than a buyer of goods and services and that it can decide for itself, in its own “ownership interest”, which company will dominate it or not, the government can impose union obligations, for example. B that the seller employs unionized staff, companies that directly supply goods or services to the government. However, if the government attempts to regulate relations between unions and employers under the jurisdiction of the National Labor Relations Board, like almost everyone else in private industry, national or local regulation can be anticipated by the primacy of the federal law over employers subject to the National Labor Relations Act. 507 U.S. 218 (1993). The order stipulates that any developer must agree, as part of the implementation of a “peace clause” obliging any covered employer working on the site of an urban development project to enter into a “labour peace agreement” with a union that wishes to represent “covered workers” working in such premises. Insured workers include all full-time and part-time workers of the registered employer, with the exception of superiors and workers who work. According to this standard, an employer and a union break the law when negotiating wages and working conditions before the union atess majority status.
Similarly, a provision requiring an employer to request the rejection of a third party`s election request limits the worker`s free choice and thus violates the law. Indeed, the explanatory memorandum to the neutrality measure suggests that a neutrality agreement in which an employer waives his right and, above all, the right of his workers to be elected by secret ballot of the NNRB to decide the questions of trade union representation (QCR) and chooses instead that those QCRs be decided by a card check to be carried out by a third party, may be subject to legal challenges. Currently, a dozen states and the District of Columbia have either “peace statutes” or municipal bylaws similar to those of New York City recently ordered: Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Florida, Washington, Oregon, California, and Nevada. . . .
