Former General Counsel of PERC Alleges Wrongful Termination

By Zachary Fink

Ira Mintz, the former General Counsel of the Public Employment Relations Commission (PERC), says he was wrongly terminated for political reasons by the Christie administration.  PERC is an independent agency that resolves labor disputes between the state and its public employees.  Over the course of Christie’s first year in office, Mintz says the commissioners issued four decisions that may have led to his dismissal.

One Response to Former General Counsel of PERC Alleges Wrongful Termination

  1. Jeff Mattingly says:

    There are labor judges that preside over contractural disputes why do we need PERC? These “quasi” government agencies, commissions, and athorities have just about broken the taxpayers collective backs in NJ and the country overall. It does not require a lot of vision to see the results of these services. Arbitratiors side with labor about 85% of the time just look at where Mr. Mintz now works.
