Portland police file grievance over election

PORTLAND -- The Portland police union has filed a grievance with the city, seeking to block voter-approved reforms to police and firefighter pensions.
Portland Police Association President Daryl Turner says the changes should be subject to collective bargaining. The grievance filed Tuesday seeks to restore past practices for the union, which has nearly 1,000 members.
The Oregonian reports the city believes the public safety pension and disability fund is an independent body -- not the union members' employer.
Voters approved changes last week that are expected to save taxpayers $47 million over 25 years. The changes are set to take effect Jan. 1.
