Here’s the History-
On May 2, 2014, the bargaining unit members at that time voted 45 to 7 to join SPFPA. The NLRB certified SPFPA as their Union representative on May 12, 2014. They won their election despite all the union-busting tactics used by their employer to defeat them. However, even after they won their election, the union-busting continued. During negotiations, SPFPA worked with the bargaining unit, but your employer bargained in bad faith. SPFPA filed unfair labor charges with the National Labor Relations Board.
Why wouldn’t your employer bargain in good faith? After all their most valuable asset, the officers decided to be represented. Why didn’t the employer respect their decision? That question can only be answered by your employer.
Years have passed, and you and your fellow officers have joined together, looking to be represented once more. On Friday, November 17, YOU and ONLY YOU can make the right decision for you and your families. SPFPA is ready to go to work for you, and TOGETHER we will succeed.
The International Union, Security, Police and Fire Professionals of America (SPFPA) offers security police professionals the voice they need to secure the wages. benefits, conditions and job security they deserve.
A resource of representation and protection to security professionals for more than 70 years, SPFPA fights to advance the welfare and interest of members through everything from education and training to legislation and collective bargaining.
Collective Bargaining: What to Know
The right to organize and negotiate the terms and conditions of your employment is commonly known as collective bargaining. Under the law, all workers have the right to engage in a bargaining process where management must bargain in good faith over everything from wages and benefits to job security and work conditions.
The process of collective bargaining is important because it provides you and your coworkers a collective voice on matters that directly impact you and your families.
