Public Employees Federation comes to agreement with Governor Andrew Cuomo to avoid layoffs

Governor and Union Have New Deal



The state's second largest labor union might avoid layoffs after a tentative deal was hammered out over the weekend. 35-hundred members of the Public Employees Federation had been facing layoffs after the first contract deal was rejected. If the union’s executive board approves it today, the governor says he will delay the layoffs so a ratification vote can take place by the union.

Bills Lose A Tough One In New York



The Bills let one get away yesterday. Ryan Fitzpatrick threw a pair of interceptions while the Bills defense failed to register any takeaways from the Giants in a 27-24 loss at the Meadowlands. With time winding down it looked the Bills were driving for a go-ahead score – at least a field goal when Fitzpatrick underthrew Stevie Johnson at the four-yard line. The ball was picked off and the Giants drove the other way for what turned out to be the winning field goal. So the Bills enter the bye week with a record of 4 & 2. They trail the Patriots now in the AFC East after the Patriots rallied to beat Dallas.
