March 20, 2019 New York - Today was an historic event when 315 Paragon Protective Service officers sent a loud and clear message to both Paragon Systems, Inc, SEIU 32 BJ and the National League of Justice and Security Professionals NLJSP when they voted in favor of LEOSU representation by a score of 167 to 7 against the NLJSP. SEIU 32BJ who was not a choice on the ballot, but ran a vote neither campaign received only thirty four (34) votes.
LEOSU Organizing Director Steve Maritas noted "while we only entered this campaign with only one membership card authorizing us to be on the ballot and only after a stipulated agreement was reached, we were victorious". Both NLJSP & SEIU 32 BJ were caught off guard and immediately went on the attack with assistance from the corrupt SPFPA Union, by personally attacking Maritas. With that said, "the LEOSU took the high road and focused on the issues concerning these Paragon PSO officers, never taking the bait", noted Maritas. In the end the PSO's stood strong and united and were not fooled by the personal attacks and phony propaganda being put out by the NLJSP, SEIU32 BJ & the corrupt SPFPA Union. "LEOSU has been the first security union in NYC to defeat SEIU 32BJ on their own home court". Noted Maritas. We wish to welcome 315 Paragon PSO officers into the LEOSU family.
