P.G. Officers compaint 10/01/10 6:15am TDH

The Pacific Grove Police Officers Association has filed a charge with the state, contending that Pacific Grove city leaders violated its contract.   The Officers Association says that the city council violated state law when it voted this summer to reduce contributions to police pensions, when it passed the Sustainable Retirement Benefit Reform Initiative.  The union maintains that the change was made without its consultation, and without a public vote, and therefore violates state labor laws.
