Many of you are receiving information from the groups Peace Officers of California (POC) and the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) regarding a campaign to decertify the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) as your exclusive bargaining agent.
Some of that information is misinformation that may mislead you in your decision-making. For instance, POC and AFSCME have been advertising PORAC Legal Defense Fund (LDF) coverage as a benefit that may be available to those who support the decertification campaign. That is simply not true. According to PORA , the plan referred to by AFSCME is for members outside of California.
I invite you to watch the video below for further thoughts on POC's campaign to decertify CSLEA. I hope you find the information helpful.
I sincerely believe CSLEA is the right choice in protecting your livelihood and your retirement.
