After a Year Long Fight to Gain RESPECT Paragon Systems Security Officers Working at GSA ROB in DC U
Washington DC 4/2/2019 After a Year Long Fight to Gain RESPECT Paragon Systems Security Officers Working at GSA ROB in DC Unanimously Vote YES to Accept their new 3 Year contract giving them significant wage increases & other important benefits including yearly wage increase, sick days, health & welfare increases, and strong contract language protecting their rights.
LEOSU-DC Organizing Director Steve Maritas noted, "while our relationship with Paragon Systems, Inc was very rocky at times, especially at the bargaining table both the Union and members never gave up hope. Both Maritas and Paragon Vice President Laura M. Hagan took hard positions at the bargaining table, which resulted in our members taking job actions against the company. When all was said and done, both parties gained a mutual respect of each other, which then led us to find some common ground and finally to a place where we worked out our differences, which resulted in LEOSU-DC, achieving a great contract for our members".
