Atlantic County Sheriff’s Office and PBA Local 243
In P.E.R.C. No. 2017-26, the Commission restrained arbitration of a grievance challenging, among other things, an electronic performance notice. The Commission held that the notice was not a disciplinary reprimand because it specified the violation of sick leave protocols but would be deleted after six months and a written copy would not be placed in the grievant’s personnel file. The notice specified the rules allegedly violated and stated that future violations would result in progressive discipline.
