LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) – The union representing Las Vegas Metro Police has filed a grievance over a “no time off” rule put in place for the period when the NFL Draft will be in Las Vegas.

The Draft, April 23rd through April 25th is expected to bring hundreds of thousands to town while shutting down portions of the Strip for large chunks of time.

The complaint filed by the Las Vegas Police Protective Association says that earlier this month, Metro instituted a rule that no vacation or leave time could be taken by officers between April 22nd and 26th.

The LVPPA says such a restriction is a violation of the collective bargaining agreement between the union and Metro. They argue that such a move needed to be negotiated, not simply instituted.

The LVPPA cited several state Supreme Court decisions that they say back up their argument.

There hasn’t been any official comment from Metro on the matter
