ELIMINATING ARBITRATION PROTECTIONS
Background: HB 2930 would eliminate many collectively-bargained arbitration protections for law enforcement officers, allowing Chiefs and sheriffs to have unaccountable discretion in disciplinary decisions. This would run counter to long-standing principles of due process and basic fairness, as well as provide opportunities for favoritism, cronyism, and discrimination among managers. ORCOPS recommends a NO vote.

E-MAIL YOUR SENATORS NOW!
Fill out the form below to express your disappointment in the Legislature's passage of HB 2930! Keep in mind that whatever you send may become a public record (though your e-mail address is protected by ORS 192.355 subsection 40). You do not have to use your full name. If you would like a response from your officials, an accurate e-mail address is necessary.
NOTE: Even if you don't want to give your full name, please do NOT pretend to be someone else. It diminishes the impact of other e-mails.
Personalize your message. Let your officials know who you are, where you're from, and why you are concerned.
Be polite. Your elected officials will be much more impressed with a reasoned message than a rude one.
Don't worry if you're not an expert on details... neither are many of the Legislators! They hear from experts all day long, but your voice means much more as a constituent.
Make sure all fields are filled out!

Your elected officials actually do like to hear from real constituents like you. Unlike Congressional offices in Washington DC, your State Legislators in Salem might actually be the ones to pick up the phone!
Even if you talk with staff or leave a message, remember to be polite but firm. Be personal and describe why you think public employees shouldn't be cut out of the process.
