Supreme Court to review union-only contract provision

A judge this afternoon signed a temporary order to halt bidding on the $16.9 million renovation of the George Harvey Justice Building in Binghamton.

Non-union contractors and their state organization Tuesday requested the stay because they said a project labor agreement signed by Broome County would restrict work on the project to a majority of union tradesmen.

Bids for the project were scheduled to be opened this afternoon in the Broome County Office Building, but the judge’s order today put the bidding process temporarily on hold.

State Supreme Court Justice Ferris D. Lebous set a hearing date of Jan. 29 and 30 for further argument on the issue.
