Reassignment of personnel
Superior Officers v Triborough Bridge & Tunnel Authority, Appellate Division, 244 AD2d 154
The Superior Officers Benevolent Association challenged the Triborough Bridge and Tunnel Authority's practice of assigning a sergeant to a lieutenant's post if the lieutenant was absent.
The Appellate Division dismissed the Superior Officer's petition, commenting that it would defer to the Authority's interpretation of its procedures for designating replacements for an absent lieutenant "since such interpretation is neither irrational nor unreasonable and effects a managerial determination within its purview." In other words, in the view of the Court the Authority was merely exercising its "management prerogatives" when it assigned a sergeant to a lieutenant's post if the lieutenant was absent.
