N.Y. Racing, Pari-Mutuel Wagering and Breeding Law Section 1330
Registration of labor organizations


1.

Each labor organization, union or affiliate seeking to represent employees who are employed in a gaming facility by a gaming facility licensee shall register with the commission biennially, and shall disclose such information as the commission may require, including the names of all affiliated organizations, pension and welfare systems and all officers and agents of such organizations and systems; provided, however, that no labor organization, union, or affiliate shall be required to furnish such information to the extent such information is included in a report filed by any labor organization, union, or affiliate with the Secretary of Labor pursuant to 29 U.S.C. § 431 et seq. or § 1001 et seq. if a copy of such report, or of the portion thereof containing such information, is furnished to the commission pursuant to the aforesaid federal provisions. The commission may in its discretion exempt any labor organization, union, or affiliate from the registration requirements of this subdivision where the commission finds that such organization, union or affiliate is not the certified bargaining representative of any employee who is employed in a gaming facility by a gaming facility licensee, is not involved actively, directly or substantially in the control or direction of the representation of any such employee, and is not seeking to do so.

2.

No person may act as an officer, agent or principal employee of a labor organization, union or affiliate registered or required to be registered pursuant to this section if the person has been found disqualified by the commission in accordance with the criteria contained in section one thousand three hundred eighteen of this article. The commission may, for purposes of this subdivision, waive any disqualification criterion consistent with the public policy of this article and upon a finding that the interests of justice so require.

3.

Neither a labor organization, union or affiliate nor its officers and agents not otherwise individually licensed or registered under this article and employed by a gaming facility licensee may hold any financial interest whatsoever in the gaming facility or gaming facility licensee whose employees they represent.

4.

The commission may maintain a civil action and proceed in a summary manner, without posting bond, against any person, including any labor organization, union or affiliate, to compel compliance with this section, or to prevent any violations, the aiding and abetting thereof, or any attempt or conspiracy to violate this section.

5.

In addition to any other remedies provided in this section, a labor organization, union or affiliate registered or required to be registered pursuant to this section may be prohibited by the commission from receiving any dues from any employee licensed or registered under this article and employed by a gaming facility licensee or its agent, if any officer, agent or principal employee of the labor organization, union or affiliate has been found disqualified and if such disqualification has not been waived by the commission in accordance with subdivision two of this section.
