[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of Monticello as indicated in article histories. Amendments noted where applicable.]
[Adopted 3-3-2015 by L.L. No. 1-2015]
The purpose of this article is to implement a requirement for all future municipal construction contracts with contractors and subcontractors to adopt apprenticeship agreements, pursuant to the New York State Labor Law.
The New York State Legislature passed legislation amending labor laws to grant municipal entities the authority to require contractors and subcontractors to include apprenticeship agreements in construction contracts. Section 816-b of the New York State Labor Law reflects the intent of such legislation.
The Village of Monticello is desirous of implementing Section 816-b of the Labor Law in the hopes of providing more opportunities to Village residents in the form of employment and professional training.
The Village of Monticello hereby requires, pursuant to New York Labor Law § 816-b, all contractors and subcontractors for all public works projects in excess of $250,000 must have an approved apprenticeship agreement pursuant to Labor Law § 816-b. This provision shall not apply to contracts awarded under emergency conditions as defined under the New York State Labor Law.
