The official petition was filed on June 10, 2022

150 Chenega Officers are joining SPFPA and leaving the troubled United Federation Leos (UFLEOS)

A group of 150 Chenega Infinity Security Professionals working at the TSA Headquarters in Springfield, Virginia, along with other nearby facilities, showed majority support for SPFPA to file an RC petition with the NLRB on Friday, June 10th. Their current union is gaining the reputation of failing its members with their “missing in action” approach to service and support.

SPFPA is ready to go to work for these Security Professionals who will soon have the opportunity to leave behind the failing federation and join the SPFPA Pride.

   

IT'S OFFICIAL!

Over five hundred MSA K-9 HANDLERS from around the country VOTE TO JOIN THE SPFPA K-9 FAMILY.

SPFPA WINS IN NEW YORK! Team SPFPA worked with the MSA New York K-9 Handlers to claim an 88 to 20 victory over the Maritas created MSA K-9 Handlers Union. The Handlers voted for fact over fiction and decided to move forward with the only real Security Police union representing K-9 Handlers. Continuing on the winning track, the National Capital Region (NCR) K-9 Handlers VOTED YES SPFPA. 

NEWS UPDATE!

MSA K-9 Handlers from around the country continued this week to vote YES for SPFPA. Handlers working in the West Region, Midwest Region, and the Southeast Region stood in solidarity with their fellow handlers in the New York Region and the National Capital Region (NCR) to join our Family Pride. 

We are proud to welcome all our new Brothers and Sisters and look forward to working together at the bargaining table and beyond.

MSA K-9 Teams from around the country overwhelmingly REJECTED the Maritas created MSA K-9 Handlers Union, who only received a total of 38 votes in 5 elections!

The Gaylord Resort and Convention Center

LEOSU loses another unit to SPFPA. 112 Marriott Hotel Services Officers @ The Gaylord Resort and Convention Center voted unanimously to leave the troubled LEOSU after its leadership failed to negotiate a new contract, trapping them into a no gain extension. SPFPA used all our resources and won the Officers the right to vote, and join our SPFPA family.  

Federal Law Enforcement Training Center

The FLETC Officers stated that LEOSU failed to provide the service and communication it had promised them. They contacted SPFPA, and with majority support, SPFPA filed a petition with the NLRB on their behalf. LEOSU/Maritas delayed the process by giving the NLRB false information about a new contract. However, when he failed to produce the “new” contract, the election moved forward. LEOSU/Maritas disclaimed interest in the FLETC Officers at the last minute, knowing he had lost all support. SPFPA won the election and welcomed the FLETC Officers to our SPFPA PRIDE.

Chenega PSOs at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) celebrate after they voted to leave LEOSU and join SPFPA. Welcome to our SPFPA family. 

The National Protection and Programs Directorate (NPPD)

This unit of Hana Industries Security Police Professionals got locked into a one year extension by the LEOSU/Federation after they failed to negotiate a new contract. When it was time, the Officers contact the SPFPA who filed a NLRB petition on their behalf, and come election day… Voted to leave the LEOSU/Federation. Welcome to our SPFPA Family. 

hana officers at the Federal Trade Commission facility in DC voted to leave an affiliate of the federation and join spfpa

A unit of Hana Industries Security Police Professionals were tired of the lack of service by their small union, USPOA an affiliate of the Federation. The Officers reached out to SPFPA, who took immediate action to help these hard working Security Police Professionals. The Officers were quick to fill out SPFPA online interest card forms and a petition was filed with the NLRB. The USPOA didn’t even fight for their members they just disclaimed interest an walked away.

 

The HANA PSOs at the Federal Trade Commission voted to rid themselves of a Federation Leos affiliate and join our SPFPA family.   

United Federation Leos tried to steal our NIH members...but failed!

Bargaining Table Success

Working with the spfpa negotiators and the units elected bargaining committee, our NIH members won a 16.7% wage increase over the next 24 months. In addition, benefits levels were increased, along with improved working conditions. SPFPA STRONG!

 

SPFPA Local 464, 465 and 466 Leadership and Members fended off attacks from United Federation, and its troubled affiliate Leos-PBA. They stood SPFPA STRONG, and were not misled by the Federation, whose only interest in the group was to line their pockets. Once the Federation knew there was no chance for a victory, they didn’t have a representative present for the count. 

NIH Officers celebrate their victory!

SPFPA Prevails in Lawsuit Against LEOSU/United Federation Executive Director STEVE MARITAS -

 

On November 23, 2021, an Oakland County Circuit Court jury awarded SPFPA $500,241.40 from LEOSU Representative Steve Maritas. The SPFPA sued Maritas after he failed to honor three separate written agreements with respect to his improper use of SPFPA property following his discharge from employment. The Court ruled Maritas violated his contractual obligations and the jury award the SPFPA the full amount of damages proved at trial. A Federal jury trial against Maritas/LEOSU on his defaming the SPFPA and its President David L. Hickey is anticipated to go to trial later this year. An even larger damages amount against Maritas and his Union is expected from the that jury. 

 A jury verdict states Maritas must pay $500,241.40

NLRB rules against troubled LEOSU/Federation

This was the troubled Leosu’s final appeal, opening the door for over 400 Los Angeles Paragon Officers to stop paying dues.

The troubled United Federation, Leos-PBA aka LEOSU tried to confuse their own members when they decided to vote to stop paying dues. Emailing them this message:

The email at issue stated: “IF YOU SHOULD RECEIVE A NLRB BALLOT IN THE MAIL PLEASE DISREGARD IT SINCE THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE RATIFICATION VOTE! RATIFICATION WILL BE DONE BY ONLINE VOTING.”
