LEOSU-DC Wins Runoff Election at the Department of Transportation & Federal Aviation Administrat

Washington, DC 6-27-2017 - The Law Enforcement Officers Security Unions LEOSU-DC was successful in beating not one security union, but rather two (2) security unions to gain the privilege of representing the one hundred and fifty one (151) protective service officers working for Quality Investigations inc (QI) @ the Department of Transportation (DOT) and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in Washington, DC on June 27th.

On May 16th the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) conducted a mail ballot election, whereby these QI protective service officers had to choose between three (3) security unions on the ballot. After all was said and done, none of the three unions received a majority vote, which lead to the two top unions receiving the most votes to battle head to head in a runoff election.

In the end the Law Enforcement Officers Security Unions LEOSU-DC became the victor.

"The Department of Transportation (DOT) and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in Washington, DC is one of the biggest sites in DC in regards to security" noted LEOSU-DC Organizing Director Steve Maritas.

"We plan to use this golden opportunity to set the stage and showcase the DOT & FAA as a premier site for all security contractors to follow in the area. As part of our commitment to these protective service officers we plan on going to the bargaining table to demand that these officers be allowed to receive their Health & Welfare paid in cash".

We are also demanding yearly wage and health and welfare increases that reflect the work these officers do. For a number of years now these QI protective service officers have not received any type of wage or H&W increases.

In addition to the above, we are seeking strong CBA language that protects these officers rights, as well as the elimination of the Step Test and shift differential just to name a few items. noted Maritas.

We wish to welcome the Quality Investigations inc (QI) protective service officers into the LEOSU-DC family.
