The Nassau Interim Finance Authority (NIFA) will be voting at the end of the month on lifting the wage freeze for Nassau County government employee contracts affecting nearly 8,000 union employees. The new agreements have already been approved by the Nassau County Legislature. The employee contracts have been frozen by NIFA for three years because Nassau has been running severe deficits and could find no way to balance the budget without it. Should NIFA vote "yes" to ratify new union agreements that would lift a three-year wage freeze?
