PBA Shield

John Nuthall


February 2, 2007

Statement by PBA President Patrick J. Lynch In reaction to city suing PERB

Pat Lynch said:

"This suit is a desperate attempt by the city to stack the deck against its police officers by trying to name a biased arbitrator. The PBA, acting in their officers’ best interests, have complied with every directive issued by PERB in this current dispute. But clearly the city is afraid to give these officers a fair hearing before an impartial arbitrator. The Taylor Law decrees that a neutral arbitrator will decide the terms of this contract, and police officers will not stand for this blatant attempt to tamper with the process."
