Unable to forge a new labor contract with the Long Beach Police Officers Assn., Long Beach city officials said Wednesday that they have begun taking steps to enforce the provisions of their last contract offer in the 642-member Police Department. A state appeals court this week refused the police union's request for a stay that would have barred the city from implementing the contract offer while the union appeals a Superior Court decision.

Long Beach Police Officers Assn. President Mike Tracy was soundly defeated in his reelection bid this week by an opponent who pledged to be more diplomatic in relations with management. Burglary detective Paul Chastain, a 28-year-veteran of the department, beat Tracy by a 300-198 vote Wednesday. The department has a long history of labor-management strife, marked last year by a bitter contract dispute and a vote of no confidence for Police Chief Lawrence Binkley by rank-and-file members.

A Superior Court judge has postponed a ruling in a labor dispute between the Long Beach police union and city management, while indicating that she will side with the city. The 610-member Long Beach Police Officers Assn. is trying to stop the city from imposing a new contract without the union's consent. But at a Los Angeles court hearing Thursday, Judge Dzintra Janavs disagreed with the union's arguments, saying federal case law supported the city's actions.

The Los Angeles County district attorney's office will conduct a full-fledged investigation of a videotaped incident in Long Beach last weekend in which a white police officer appeared to push a black man's face through a plate-glass window, a spokesman said Friday. The investigation is "basically to see if any crime was committed, (whether) the officer used excessive force in detaining (Don) Jackson," spokesman Al Albergate said.
