Pennsylvania Union Files NLRB Complaint to Stop Off-Duty Arrest - Yahoo! NewsThe state is in reform mode, which makes it even harder to explain why the Scranton Policeman's Union picked this year to file a lawsuit against Police Chief Dan Duffy with the National Labor Relations Board.
The NLRB complaint stemmed from an off-duty arrest of a drug dealer by Chief Duffy. The arrest violated the labor contract with the police officer's union, they say.
The police officer's union is interpreting the contract to mean that arrest can only be made by members of the "bargaining unit."
