Challenging the City's elimination of a Captain's position within the police command staff, NP Attorney Gary Nolan recently represented the NEPBA and its Local, the City of Everett Superior Officers' Union, in a Division of Labor ULP proceeding. The NEPBA won the case at the hearing level and the City appealed to the full Commonwealth Employee Relations Board. The union was again successful. The Board affirmed the labor law violations committed by the City, and ordered it to restore the status quo, including transferring back to its Captains the command duties of the Detective Division.
