Con Ed lockout on hold thanks to power of Cuomo, storms
July 26th, 2012

Gov. Andrew Cuomo has faced some criticism for not getting involved in the Con Edison labor dispute earlier — but better late than never.

With storms on the horizion, Cuomo announced today that he has convinced both sides to have “necessary personnel” return to work for the sake of public safety.

“At my request and in the interest of the safety of New Yorkers, Con Ed and Local 1-2 have agreed that the necessary personnel will immediately return to work to prepare for the possibility of an approaching storm and will remain on the job for the duration of any emergency and any following repairs,” Cuomo said in a statement.

This follows a letter he sent yesterday asking for the state to oversee meetings between labor and management.

    Ty,Under VTL 12225-d(2)(a) the term Portable electronic deivce is defined as any hand-held mobile telephone, as defined by subdivision one of section twelve hundred twenty-five-c of this article, personal digital assistant (PDA), handheld deivce with mobile data access, laptop computer, pager, broadband personal communication deivce, two-way messaging deivce, electronic game, or portable computing deivce. It does NOT mention mp3 players and, therefore, does not prohibit their use (unless of course it also has computing capacity like an iTouch deivce). Of course, don’t be surprised if zealous police officers write you up with using an mp3 especially while the law is still new and police officers have not been fully educated.Thanks for submitting this question.
