All contracts of an authority involving the employment, among others, of laborers,
workmen or mechanics shall be in conformity with the provisions of article eight of
the labor law, and such provisions shall be deemed terms of all such contracts; and
for the purpose of obtaining the prevailing rate of wages or fees for such contracts,
the authority shall proceed in the same manner as the municipality in which the authority
operates. All such contracts involving the employment, among others, of architects, draftsmen
or technicians, whether or not working on the site of the project, shall contain a
provision requiring that the wages or fees prevailing in the municipality shall be
paid to such architects, draftsmen and technicians; and for the purpose of obtaining
the prevailing rate of wages or fees, the authority shall proceed in the same manner
as the municipality proceeds in obtaining the prevailing rate of wages or fees for
laborers, workmen and mechanics; and the industrial commissioner 1 of the state or the municipal comptroller, as the case may be, shall determine such
prevailing rates of wages or fees upon application of an authority in the same manner
as provided by article eight of the labor law for laborers, workmen and mechanics. Employees of all contractors and subcontractors employed under or by virtue of such
contracts shall have the right to organize and to bargain collectively through representatives
of their own choosing.
The Industrial Commissioner was redesignated the Commissioner of Labor pursuant to
L.1982, c. 86, § 1, eff. May 11, 1982.
