Former Pine Hill Highway Department foreman Edward Houck, who was demoted this month to truck driver/laborer, has filed a grievance, saying he was never given a written notification that his job performance was unsatisfactory. The grievance, sent to Council President William Dougherty, who supervises the department, asks why there was no written notice of the demotion or of the change in his position and title. Dougherty took over as highway department supervisor on Jan. 6. Ten days later, he demoted Houck, 61, and promoted Robert Labree, 40, to department foreman.

Quarterback Ty Detmer has filed a grievance with the NFL Management Council in an effort to settle a dispute with the Eagles about his 1997 salary, a league source said yesterday. At issue is a clause in Detmer's contract that could more than double his salary based on last year's playing time. The grievance says that Detmer should receive $1.55 million because he played in more than half the Eagles' offensive plays last season. The Eagles contend that Detmer should receive the $700,000 his contract originally called for. Neither Joe Banner, the Eagles' senior vice president, nor Don Yee, Detmer's agent, would comment on the grievance yesterday.

A time clock hangs on a wall in the highway garage of Clifton Heights Borough. Above the clock is a sign that reads, "This is the earliest I've ever been late. " The sign is a joke. The clock isn't. It has been a source of annoyance to the borough's eight unionized highway and sanitation workers since it was installed Feb. 15. They contend that punching in and out of work is an unwarranted change in their work conditions and have filed a grievance. Two hearings before members of the Borough Council have failed to resolve the issue, according to shop steward David DiPhillipo, and now the borough and the union are going to arbitration.

An attorney for the NFL Players Association says that the union plans to file a grievance with the league against the Eagles for forcing several players to take pay cuts last week after the final roster cutdown. "We're still investigating the facts, but it appears to us that the Eagles have violated the collective bargaining agreement and each of the players' contracts," Jeffrey Kessler, who represents the union, said yesterday. At least six Eagles players, including starting offensive tackle Broderick Thompson and backup quarterback Bubby Brister, were asked to take 10 to 30 percent pay cuts.

The Radnor Township teachers' association has won a grievance against the school district over the pay of three part-time teachers at the middle school. Meanwhile, negotiations for a new contract were to resume tonight after talks were broken off a month ago. In the grievance, an arbitrator for the state Labor Relations Board ruled that the district must pay the teachers the same salaries for teaching three periods a day. The teachers had been paid different salaries.

The Detroit Lions filed a grievance with the NFL to get back $5.5 million of the signing bonus paid to running back Barry Sanders in 1997, his agent said yesterday. David Ware said he had been negotiating with the club concerning the $11 million bonus Sanders got when he signed a six-year contract. But he said talks ended without resolution. "An arbitrator will decide if the money is owed," Ware said. The Lions star abruptly retired in August, saying he no longer wished to play.

THE TEACHERS' union will file a grievance for each member recalled by the district in violation of seniority rules in the current contract, Jerry Jordan, president of the Philadelphia Federation of Teachers, announced last night during a phone call with thousands of members, sources said. Jordan's pronouncement would appear to directly challenge the district's effort last week to suspend certain sections of the public-school code, including seniority rules and step wage increases.

AS THIS season trudges to an inglorious finish, the Eagles needed to make a roster move to bring aboard fullback/tight end Emil Igwenagu, so he could back up Clay Harbor, with Brent Celek sidelined for Thursday's game against Cincinnati. That move was to place defensive tackle Mike Patterson on the nonfootball injury-illness list, ending Patterson's season, agent Peter Schaffer said. But that isn't the part that has Schaffer angry enough to plan to file a grievance with the NFLPA.

Chrissy Shelly, whose son Todd suffers from cystic fibrosis, said Madden discriminated against her son by not requiring teachers to follow through on work for him during his frequent absences. As a result, he failed courses and almost didn't graduate.

A breakaway group from the Occupy Wall Street movement is organizing a national assembly in Philadelphia around the Fourth of July to draft a petition for "redress of grievances. " The assembly would not be an Occupy-style event, Michael S. Pollok, a New York lawyer and organizer, said Wednesday. The group would meet in a "state of the art" facility near Independence Hall as opposed to occupying a public space, he said. Also, the delegates who attend must be elected, a major shift from how Occupy Wall Street or Philadelphia operated.

MONROVIA, Liberia - Even as she basks in praise from abroad after sharing the Nobel Peace Prize, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf is facing an election at home that she may lose. She's credited with stabilizing Liberia after civil war, but most of the people voting in Tuesday's election have not been able to find a job since she took office nearly six years ago. Voters camped out overnight and formed lines that were dozens of people deep. Their faces were wet from the early morning downpour, yet they patiently waited their turn, huddled in groups of twos and threes under candy-colored umbrellas for a chance to either reelect Sirleaf, or choose from one of the 15 opposition candidates who say they'll do a better job. The Harvard-educated Sirleaf, 72, is credited with attracting donors and helping restructure the country's debt.
