IMO Borough of Keyport v. Local 68 (A-43/44-13; 072361) 
The three municipalities in this case acted for reasons of economy based on municipal fiscal distress 

existing at the time, rendering the management choice to use a temporary or permanent layoff solution one that constituted a managerial prerogative not subject to negotiation. The layoff actions at issue in this consolidated appeal constituted non-negotiable subjects under prong three of the Local 195 test for negotiability. Local 195, IFPTE v. State, 88 N.J. 393 (1982).
