The NCPBA Announces Lawsuit Against the North Carolina Department of Public Safety on Behalf of Members

 

On June 25, 2018, the NCPBA held a press conference in Raleigh, NC to announce the filing of a lawsuit on behalf of our members against the Department of Public Safety. This suit has been filed due to what we believe to be a deliberate and pervasive scheme by DPS administrators to deny benefits to our members that were supported and passed into law by state legislators.

 
According to North Carolina PBA Executive Director John Midgette, “The actions alleged here exemplify a systematic practice and attitude by senior leaders that has plagued the Department of Corrections for many decades.”
 
The same shameful treatment that has denied our members lawful treatment and benefits exemplifies a culture of corruption that promulgates a system of workplace malfeasance, severe officer injury and even death.
 
“Our hope is that our effort here will begin a process of accountability, respect and support that has been denied to our correctional officers for far too many years,” said Midgette.
