Section: 5:12-93: Registration of labor organizations.
93. Registration of Labor Organizations. a. Each labor organization, union or affiliate seeking to represent employees who are employed in a casino hotel, casino or casino simulcasting facility by a casino licensee shall register with the division biennially, and shall disclose such information to the division as the division 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.s.431 et seq. or s. 1001 et seq. if a copy of such report, or of the portion thereof containing such information, is furnished to the division pursuant to the aforesaid federal provisions. The division may in its discretion exempt any labor organization, union, or affiliate from the registration requirements of this subsection where the division finds that such organization, union or affiliate is not the certified bargaining representative of any employee who is employed in a casino hotel, casino or casino simulcasting facility by a casino 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.
b. 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 division in accordance with the criteria contained in section 86 of that act. The division may, for purposes of this subsection, waive any disqualification criterion consistent with the public policy of this act and upon a finding that the interests of justice so require.
c. Neither a labor organization, union or affiliate nor its officers and agents not otherwise individually licensed or registered under this act and employed by a casino licensee may hold any financial interest whatsoever in the casino hotel, casino, casino simulcasting facility or casino licensee whose employees they represent.
d. Any person, including any labor organization, union or affiliate, who shall violate, aid and abet the violation, or conspire or attempt to violate this section is guilty of a crime of the fourth degree.
e. The division 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.
f. 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 division from receiving any dues from any employee licensed or registered under that act and employed by a casino 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 division in accordance with subsection b. of this section. The division may proceed in the manner provided by subsection e. of this section to enforce an order of the director prohibiting the receipt of dues.
g. Nothing contained in this section shall limit the power of the division to proceed in accordance with subsection c. of section 107 of P.L.1977, c.110 (C.5:12-107).
L.1977, c.110, s.93; amended 1981, c.503, s.14; 1987, c.355, s.6; 1995, c.18, s.31; 2002, c.65, s.18; 2011, c.19, s.59.
