Massachusetts Division of Labor Relations issues complaint against Town of Chelmsford for Bad Faith Conduct in JLMC proceeding as a result of NEPBA investigation and complaint.

After an exhaustive investigation by the NEPBA and Chelmsford Police Superior Officer’s Union, the DLR found probable cause that the town violated a multitude of labor laws, including unlawful cooperation with a JLMC panel member during confidential arbitration deliberations. The DLR also charged the town with making misrepresentations to the elected Town Meeting representatives when presenting the JLMC award.

The union’s investigation consisted of in-depth public records requests that produced indisputable evidence supporting its complaints, including email correspondence between the Town and the cooperating JLMC panel member.

The case was handled by NEPBA lawyers Nolan | Perroni and can be read below.
