Welcome to the New York State Public Employer Labor Relations Association (NYSPELRA) website. NYSPELRA is a non-profit association of professionals who represent the managements of various public employers throughout New York in their dealings with their union-represented employees. Our members include those in the employ of State and local government agencies, counties, towns, villages, school districts, colleges, universities, hospitals, and public authorities.
The New York State Public Employer Labor Relations Association (NYSPELRA)was established to provide public employers in New York State with the same pool of support services which historically have been available to the labor organization which service public sector unions. No individual management advocate can bring a particularly difficult labor relations problem into focus the way our collective resources can.
