The Law Enforcement Officers Security Unions (LEOSU-DC) Washington DC mission is to serve as a voice for law enforcement officers and security professionals in  Washington DC Region to their employers.  Thousands of law enforcement officers and security professionals provide a fundamental protective service to federal agencies as contractors. These bargaining unit employees need to have their workplace concerns and interests represented to their employer with passion, integrity, and fairness.  LEOSU-DC delivers a comprehensive employee and labor relations program that will provide high quality service to officers by representing their interests and negotiating with the employer for results that create a better workplace.  Our union is characterized by three core values: personalized service, transparency, and results.

The number one issue that LEOSU-DC representatives address when speaking with groups interested in switching union affiliation is the quality of our negotiators, business agents and the service they provide to their local units. Calls are returned promptly. Many questions are answered on the spot, more difficult inquiries are responded to immediately after the issue is investigated.

Workers’ Rights Manual, 2014 Edition


The Employment Justice Center’s Workers’ Rights Manual is an attempt to provide a comprehensive source of legal information about the rights of workers in the Washington, D.C. area. Almost without exception, the law from the state where the worker was employed is the law to apply to any potential claim. Thus, a Maryland resident who works in D.C. must look to D.C. law. Where possible, we have included information on Maryland and Virginia claims; however, a complete discussion of Maryland and Virginia laws is outside the scope of this manual.
