Union Representation

As a member of the APBA, one of the primary benefits of membership is union representation. The APBA will provide you with representation in all cases of discipline by your command, including suspension, demotion and dismissal. Union representation is provided at all stages of the grievance and/or arbitration process. Including whenever you are the subject of an internal affairs investigation or supervisory investigation and are ordered to answer questions whether it be a verbal statement or submission of a memorandum.

We are in your corner to make sure you are treated fairly and with expert representation.
