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.

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.
