No More Mandatory Overtime for Las Vegas Metro Police. . .For Now. . .

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Protective Association, the union that represents Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Officers has won a temporary restraining order preventing the police department from mandating overtime for city police officers. The union is claiming certain provisions contained in the current collective bargaining agreement (CBA) between the city and police officers do not allow for mandatory overtime. The current CBA defines the normal workweek as 40 hours, unless the parties mutually agree to an alternate work schedule of 80 hours every two weeks.

Judge Timothy Williams of the Nevada Eighth Judicial District Court issued the temporary restraining order this past Wednesday. Judge Williams has scheduled an evidentiary hearing for December 5 to determine if a preliminary injunction should be granted.
