"It appears that (Cardinale) saw an opportunity to punish nonunion members, and he took it," said the supervisor, referring to Police Supervisors Association President Leonard Cardinale.

Cardinale, the union boss who approved the move, said PSA attorneys spent weeks researching the legality of the legal fee charges before moving ahead with the union board-approved effort. The idea, he said, wasn't to punish nonunion workers or reward union members but to make sure everyone shared equally in the price of legal representation.
He wasn't surprised to hear that some nonunion police supervisors disagreed.
"This particular situation has never been tested, but the law says there are no free rides," he said.
"I would say legally, (Cardinale) is well within his rights. … I think the (federal) Supreme Court decision is further proof that what he's trying to do is correct."
Police Supervisors Association President Leonard Cardinale, who leads the smallest of three bargaining groups to bring legal action against the city, said he doesn't plan to break off talks with the city as result of the ruling.
"This ruling wasn't about money; it was about right and wrong," Cardinale said.
According to court documents, Cardinale made the statements as president of the North Las Vegas Police Supervisors Association, which represents the interests of police sergeants and lieutenants.
Following the comments, Chronister reassigned Cardinale from a day-shift non-patrol position to a swing-shift patrol position.
As a result, Cardinale was denied adequate time to perform association business and was required to use his annual leave, according to court documents.
Also, Cardinale no longer received his specialty pay that he had received since before 2011.

Leonard Cardinale, president of the Police Supervisors Association, said it's possible that the city can get out from under its structural deficit, and the unions won't consider concessions until the city can provide a line-item review of its finances.

"We're not buying the numbers," Cardinale said before a Jan. 7 special City Council meeting to review city finances. "We're going to trust the new management, but we're also going to verify. If they can prove that they're broke, then we'll do whatever it takes."
Cardinale said cost-of-living adjustments and merit raises baked into city budget projections paint an unnecessarily bleak picture of municipal finances. Police supervisors haven't taken a cost-of-living raise in years and gave back a 4.25 percent pay increase during the last round of contract negotiations, he said.
Asked about Adair's remark that a court decision favoring city unions could "hand bargaining groups the keys to the city," Cardinale shrugged.
"I'll run the city," he said.

However, Mike Yarter, president of the Police Officers Association, and Leonard Cardinale, president of the Police Supervisors Association, said they'll consider a lawsuit in an effort to block the plan.

"The problem is not the concessions, it's that they're violating the law to get them," Cardinale told the Las Vegas Sun.
