ShOA Rallies in Support of Contract, Binding Arbitration
The Sheriff Officers Association (ShOA), the union representing some 1,100 Nassau County correction officers, has been without a contract since December 2004. Contract negotiations with the county over the past two years have been unsuccessful as have attempts by the union to obtain binding arbitration, which requires the passage of home rule legislation by a vote of 13 legislators before the bill can be reviewed at a state level.
