KNOW THE TRUTH BEFORE YOU VOTE!

To all Hana PSO's working at the IRS DC and the IRS New Carrolton, below are facts you need to know! 

These units recently left the FEDERATION leos to join our SPFPA Family!

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. 

Here’s a  point of interest –

The National Protection and Programs Directorate (NPPD) is a component of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security that exists to advance the department’s mission of reducing federal security risk across the country, including cyber threats and risk to communications systems.

 

To all Security Police Professionals – Thank You for all you do!

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

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.”
