New York Shipping Association v. Waterfront Commission of New York Harbor, 14-3956

In an appeal concerning the hiring practices and procedures utilized on the New York/New Jersey waterfront, the District Court's judgment in favor of the Waterfront Commission-defendant is affirmed where: 1) defendant was within its statutory authority to require shipping companies and other employers to certify that prospective employees had been referred for employment pursuant to federal and state nondiscrimination policies; and 2) the Commission did not unlawfully interfere with collective bargaining rights, because such rights were not completely protected under the language of the Waterfront Commission Compact, which was entered into by the states of New Jersey and New York in 1953.
