150 Chenega "TSA" Professionals support joining SPFPA!

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!

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.

SPFPA Local 464 and 465 STAND SPFPA UNITY STRONG!

SPFPA Local 464 and 465 Leadership and Members worked together with International Vice President Joe McCray to fend off attacks from two small unions. Their unity was their shield against being misled by the other unions whose only interest in the group was to line their pocket. They are just not prepared to handle a unit of this size. Once they knew there was no chance for a victory, neither union had a representative present for the count. SPFPA International and Local representatives were present in full force.

One of the attackers, the united federation, and its troubled affiliate leos-pba has lost two elections in a row, and more of their groups are reaching out to the SPFPA for help.

We congratulate our Brothers and Sisters of Local 464 and 465 and are honored to continue our service to these hardworking Officers.

it's official!

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 we welcome them to our SPFPA PRIDE.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL SECURITY POLICE PROFESSIONALS –

Federal Trade Commission Officers are set to join spfpa!

A unit of Hana Industries Security Police Professionals were tired of the lack of service by their small union, an affiliate of a so-called 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. 

When the final election agreement was completed, the small affiliated union of the so-called federation would not be part of the election, knowing they were going to lose, they wouldn’t even fight to keep their members.

Just recently 362 members of this particular Union filed a petition with the NLRB seeking to remove the Union security clause from their contract. 

If you are stuck in a failing union and you want to put the experience and resources that only SPFPA can deliver then, Call 800-228-7492 our SPFPA representatives are ready to help you and your fellow Officers join the SPFPA Pride!
