All Officers who filed a grievance on the Class D uniform should be receiving an email from the City’s Labor Relations Administrator, Lori Steward.

The Police Chief and the Phoenix Law Enforcement Association have scheduled 4 group meeting opportunities for you to meet with the Police Chief regarding your grievance.  This meeting represents Step 3 of the Grievance Procedure.

The 4 opportunities are:

All meetings will be held in the Chief’s Conference Room located at 620 W. Washington.  Only grievants and their representatives are allowed to attend.  Grievants may only attend one of the four meetings.

Please respond and let me know which meeting you plan to attend, or that you are choosing not to participate in the meeting.

PLEA is encouraging ALL grievants to attend one of the above meetings. This will be your chance to voice your concerns to Chief Garcia.  Make sure you follow the directions on the email and let Lori Steward know which meeting you will be attending.  As a reminder, this opportunity is only available to the over 100 members who were willing to put their name on the grievance. PLEA Vice President Ken Crane and Treasurer Will Buividas will be in attendance at all four meetings on behalf of PLEA.  If you have any questions please contact the PLEA office.

At this point, Chief Garcia has made no changes or modifications to his directive on uniforms and no additional changes have been approved for the Class C uniform.
