Advocates aim to kill job site union rules island-wide after Oyster Bay injunction

April 16, 2018 01:35PM

A coalition of business and construction leaders want to end rules across Long Island requiring job sites hire union labor. In February, a federal judge issued a preliminary injunction on the Town of Oyster Bay’s apprenticeship laws, making it possible for non-union labor to work on major construction projects in the town. Now, the group hopes to strike down similar laws in Babylon, Brookhaven, Huntington, North Hempstead and Smithtown. The group includes Association for a Better Long Island, Long Island Builders Institute and Associated Builders & Contractors. [LIBN]
