NYPD Officer Brian Mulkeen, NYPD, Officer Down

RIP #NYPD Officer Brian Mulkeen, murdered early this morning in the Bronx…

Just after midnight this morning, a brave NYPD police officer doing the job we asked him to do – the job that New Yorkers needed him to do – was shot and killed.

I will remind you that the information I’m about to give you is preliminary and subject to change as this investigation proceeds.

About 12:30 this morning, NYPD police officers assigned to the Bronx Borough Anti-Crime Unit were patrolling the streets around the Edenwald Houses – 1132 East 229th Street. They were there because of gang activity, which included recent shootings in the area.

Behind that location, three officers in one police car got out of their vehicle to question a man. The man fled and a foot pursuit ensued. As Officer Brian Mulkeen and his partner attempted to apprehend the man, a violent struggle on the ground began.

On body-worn camera video, Officer Mulkeen can be heard yelling, “He’s reaching for it – he’s reaching for it.”

Antonio Lavance Williams, NYPD Brian Mulkeen

The ex-con whose hand-to-hand struggle with a Bronx cop for the lawman’s gun ended with both men being shot dead early Sunday has been identified by police sources as Antonio Lavance Williams. Brian Mulkeen (left) and Antonio Lavance Williams.

At this time numerous shots were fired and our officer was struck a total of 3 times.

Five officers at the location fired their service weapons striking the man. The suspect was pronounced deceased on the scene and his firearm – a .32-caliber revolver – was recovered by police. Our critically-injured officer was rushed here to Jacobi Medical Center, where he was pronounced deceased.

Police Officer Brian Mulkeen was 33 years old. He served more than 6-and-a-half years with the New York City Police Department. He was appointed on January 9, 2013. He lived in Yorktown Heights with his girlfriend, who is also a cop in the Bronx.

The suspect is a 27-year-old man who was on probation until 2022 for a narcotics-related arrest last year. He has several prior arrests in various places, including a burglary conviction in Rockland County.

G4S Security Lockout Ends @ Xcel Monticello Nuclear Plant After a Show of Solidarity By Labor Unions

G4S Security Lockout Ends @ Xcel Monticello Nuclear Plant After a Show of Solidarity By Labor Unions

Nuclear Security Officers have been picketing this week outside Xcel Energy’s nuclear power plant in Monticello in an ongoing labor dispute that started on August 31, 2019.

The 23 union employees work for G4S, a London-based company under contract with Xcel to provide security for the plant.

G4S locked the workers out after their contract expired and they rejected a proposed new contract. The union said the company wants to change the employees’ health plan, which it said would result in higher costs and less coverage for workers.

Josh Haider, president of United Security Professionals Local 2, the union that represents shift leaders or supervisors, said union we’re getting a ton of union support from all over the state, which is great,” Haider said.

This included the National Union of Nuclear Security Officers NUNSO, Law Enforcement Officers Security Unions LEOSU and LEOSU-DC, out of New York and Washington DC, Teamsters Local 120, Minneapolis Regional Labor Federation, United Security Professionals Local 1, LIUNA, SEIU and IBEW Local 160 who refused to cross the picket line.

After this show of support by these labor unions, the community and local representatives the company G4S finally raised the white flag in defeat and withdrew its lockout and caved in to the United Security Professionals Local 2 demands not to take away their healthcare.

G4S, United Security Professionals Local 2 Negotiations, Monticello Nuclear Plant Lockout

Locked out union nuclear security officers at the Monticello Nuclear Power Plant have reached a deal with security solutions company G4S.

At issue was a change in their health insurance plan.

Joshua Haider, President of the United Security Professionals Local 2 says when G4S took over from Securitas in 2018, G4S told them both verbally and in writing they wouldn’t change their health plan, but Haider says that was the first thing they mentioned when they sat down at the bargaining table in March.

A last ditch effort was made by the union before the lockout with an “either or” proposal. Option A was allowing the workers to take the new Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance, but with raises to cancel out the insurance contribution loss. Option B was workers keeping the current insurance coverage but with less of a raise. Haider says G4S called their proposal unreasonable.

Haider says the new deal with G4S allows them to keep their health insurance plan and also offered them a 2.5% cost of living raise. G4S will also be increasing their contributions to employee 401K plans and will be giving each worker a thousand dollars to cover expenses for the days they were out on the picket line.

Union sources say G4S contacted them around midnight to say they would agree to their requests, adding that they are very appreciative of G4S for coming to an agreement, quickly ending the lockout.

Randy Sand has been working at the power plant since 1979. He says this was a stressful time for them.

It becomes stressful for us and our families but what do you do. You press on and rely on the strength of our members and the community and hope things will get resolved.

 

At a press conference this morning Haider says, “We do look forward at this time to cultivating a mutually beneficial relationship with G4S, and by extension their client Xcel. We are ready to roll up our sleeves and get back to work.”

Haider said the union never had an issue with Xcel Energy, who operates the plant.

G4S was looking to switch the union over to Blue Cross Blue Shield and workers say they were very worried about the dispute between Blue Cross Blue Shield and the Minnesota Hospital Association. Workers also say that the package was inferior to what they have now, and would have cost significantly more because G4S said they were also going to cut their contributions to their health insurance costs. That equaled out to about $10 thousand per year per worker.

Employees were locked out of their jobs starting at 12:01 a.m. September 1st. Replacement workers were brought in, but Haider says they are not familiar with emergency procedures and evacuation protocol, putting the plant and the surrounding communities at risk.

In an emailed statement, G4S says, “G4S negotiated a tentative collective bargaining agreement with United Security Professionals Local 2 last night and hopes to have a final agreement in place in the next two weeks. As a result, Local 2 lieutenants will resume their previous duties at the Monticello plant on Monday with contingency officers remaining on duty throughout the weekend. G4S is pleased this matter has been resolved and looks forward to receiving the team back at their regular posts where they will continue to provide excellent security services to the customer.”

The press conference above was attended by the following local politicians who saw a need to get involved in this lockout.

Senator Bruce D. Anderson (29, R) Bruce Douglas Anderson is an American politician and member of the Minnesota Senate. A member of the Republican Party of Minnesota, he represents District 29, which includes portions of Hennepin and Wright counties in central Minnesota.

Appearing at the press conference was Marion O’Neill a member of the Minnesota House of Representatives. A member of the Republican Party of Minnesota, she represents District 29B in central Minnesota.

Shane Mekeland is an American politician and member of the Minnesota House of Representatives. A member of the Republican Party of Minnesota, he represents District 15B in central Minnesota.

Xcel Energy owns and operates two nuclear power plants: Monticello Nuclear Generating Plant near Monticello, MN, and Prairie Island Nuclear Generating Plant near Red Wing, MN. These plants produce nearly 30 percent of the electricity we provide to customers in the Upper Midwest.

Monticello, MN – Nuclear Security lieutenants with the United Security Professionals Local 2 Union working at Xcel Energy Monticello Nuclear Generating Plant have been locked out of their jobs as of Midnight on august 31st.

Monticello Nuclear Power Plant, NUNSO, Nuclear Security Union

G4S security solutions the company that has been contracted to provide the security services for Xcel Energy Monticello Nuclear Generating Plant, told them they have reached an impasse in contract negotiations with the union and have no interest in coming back to the bargaining table.

xcel energy monticello nuclear generating plant lockout, G4S

The main sticking point is a change to their health benefits package. The union says they want to work out an agreement, but according to workers there, G4S is refusing to come back to the table.

Union President Joshua Haider stated they were allowed to clock in for their shift at 5:30 p.m. but they will be locked out starting at midnight.

The unions say’s they sent G4S a last minute Either or” proposal which included.

Option A was the nuclear officers would take the new Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance, but with raises to cancel out the insurance loss.

xcel energy monticello nuclear generating plant lockout, G4S

G4S wants to switch to the new Blue Cross Blue Shield package and cut their contributions by half, which is around $10 thousand dollars for each worker every year.

Option B was nuclear officers keeping the current insurance coverage but with less of a raise.

xcel energy monticello nuclear generating plant lockout

Haider says G4S called their proposals unreasonable and rejected both proposals.

A source with the union stated that when G4S took over in the spring of 2018, the company allegedly told union members both verbally and in writing they would not make any changes to their health insurance.

xcel energy monticello nuclear generating plant lockout

This source said when the two sides went to the bargaining table, health insurance was the first thing G4S mentioned they were going to change. The source says G4S told them to make up for the cost changes, they were willing to give union members a half a percent over the cost of living raise, but the union says it’s not about the money.

We are told G4S is looking to switch the union over to Blue Cross Blue Shield and workers are very worried about the dispute between Blue Cross Blue Shield and the Minnesota Hospital Association.

xcel energy monticello nuclear generating plant lockout

Workers say with BCBS denying or delaying coverage for medically necessary care, they and their families are being put at risk.

Replacement workers have been brought in. Some of the workers are from the Prairie Island Nuclear Power Plant near Red Wing. Others, sources say are from out of state.

United Security Professionals Local 2 is made up of roughly 25 highly trained Nuclear Security lieutenants who supply heavy armed security to the Monticello Nuclear Power Plant. They are trained in anti-terrorism tactics, and they worry the plant will be vulnerable.

NUNSO, National Union of Nuclear Security Officers NUNSO

National Union of Nuclear Security Officers NUNSO, Organizing Director Steve Maritas stated this is union-busting at its best. G4S is making an example out of these officers to set the stage for its upcoming negotiations with the 75 nuclear officers who make up the rest of the security force.

NUNSO, LEOSU will do whatever we have to do to assist our brothers and sisters in this fight noted Maritas.

xcel energy monticello nuclear generating plant lockout, G4S

NUNSO Organizing Director is planning to fly to Monticello, MN tomorrow to help and assist United Security Professionals Local 2 members and their families who are on the picket line. Maritas has also offered assistance in trying to mediate an end to this lockout, if G4S is willing to come back to the table and negotiate in good faith.

xcel energy monticello nuclear generating plant lockout

The Union say’s they are very concerned that with fewer people providing security, and those who are in place not being familiar with their training, tactics, security plan and layout of the plant, employees in other areas of the plant and those in the surrounding communities are being put at serious risk.

Landslide Victory LEOSU Defeats the Corrupt spfpa Union Once Again This Time by 4 to 1 in Louisville Kentucky – Paragon Systems Inc

SPFPA, LEOSU, PARAGON SYSTEMS INC, LOUISVILLE KENTUCKY

The Law Enforcement Officers Security Unions LEOSU was victorious in defeating both SPFPA & PROA, winning this Paragon Systems 4 way NLRB Election to have the privilege and right to represent the Paragon Systems Inc protective service officers in Louisville, Kentucky.

LEOSU, SPFPA, PARAGON SYSTEMS, NLRB CERTIFICATION, KENTUCKY

On 8/15/2019 the National Labor Relations Board has certified the results of this Paragon Systems election.

In a stunning landslide NLRB election, the Law Enforcement Security Officers Union (“LEOSU”) won the representation election and will be representing the protective service officers PSO’s at Paragon Systems, Inc protecting federal facilities throughout Louisville Kentucky which includes Romano Mazzoli Federal Building, Gene Snyder U.S. Courthouse and Custom House, United States Attorney’s Office, Immigration Court Heyburn Building, SSA and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) formally represented by the Protection and Response Officers of America PROA a Georgia state based union.

This National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) election was not your typical NLRB election, due to the fact that the unit being sought, the entire Commonwealth of Kentucky contract, which was represented by the incumbent union PROA, had been awarded to a new Federal Protective Service contractor Patronus Systems Inc as of July 1, 2019. Since Patronus Systems Inc was to take over this federal protective service contract on July 1, 2019, and at the time the petition was filed they were not the legal employer, nor did they employ any of the protective service officers on the Commonwealth of Kentucky contract, the NLRB set this case 09-RC-243304 for hearing.

In addition to the above the LEOSU had filed a motion to remove SPFPA from the ballot if Patronus Systems Inc remained on the ballot. The reason for this was due to the fact Patronus Systems Inc was owned by Mabel O’Quinn wife of SPFPA International Union Region 2 Vice President Rick O’Quinn.

The ownership of Patronus Systems Inc by Mabel O’Quinn wife of SPFPA Region 2 Vice President Rick O’Quinn Clearly created a CONFLICT of INTEREST.

After much discussion at this NLRB hearing on this Conflict of Interest between Patronus Systems Inc President Mabel O’Quinn and her husband SPFPA Region 2 Vice President Rick O’Quinn and the appropriateness of unit and if in fact Patronus Systems Inc could be viewed as a joint employer of Paragon, which is now a major subject of litigation before the Board as to what constitutes a “JOINT EMPLOYER” the LEOSU decided to amend its original petition rather than to face possible years of legal litigation, to only include the Paragon Systems protective service officers working in Louisville, Kentucky, who were to remain as a subcontractor on this contract after the July 1st date. In the end the NLRB Acting Regional director determined and agreed with the LEOSU that the Paragon PSO’s working in the Louisville Kentucky was an appropriate unit and ordered an NLRB mail ballot election.

After LEOSU called the election, the rival Security Police and Fire Professionals of America (“SPFPA”) who has a long history of corruption & embezzlement intervened in the election, with SPFPA’s President David Hickey personally flying to Kentucky to campaign in the election and committing to be the lead negotiator should SPFPA be selected as their new collective bargaining agent, SPFPA then launched what one union observer described as a “scorched-earth” campaign to demonize the rival union.

SPFPA Corruption, SPFPA David L. Hickey, SPFPA Detroit, SPFPA Embezzlement, SPFPA Roseville MI

SPFPA has a Long History of Corruption & Embezzlement Under The Leadership of David L. Hickey. Security and Fire Professionals President in Detroit Pleads Guilty. On July 19, 2019, Esper Alexander, former president of Security, Police and Fire Professionals of America Local 1111, pleaded guilty in Wayne County (Michigan) District Court to one count of larceny by conversion of funds from the Detroit-based union. The plea follows an investigation by the U.S. Labor Department’s Office of Labor-Management Standards.

SPFPA’s President David Hickey personally flew to Kentucky to campaign in the election and committing to be the lead negotiator should SPFPA be selected as their new collective bargaining agent, SPFPA then launched what one union observer described as a “scorched-earth” campaign to demonize the rival union.

In the election, despite SPFPA’s dirty propaganda tactics, as well as Hickey’s vicious lies and desperation promises, LEOSU beat and won this NLRB election with 16 votes, to only 4 votes for SPFPA.

Robert Mares a Paragon PSO Officer noted “People at the Mazzoli were ecstatic when they found out about the win, yesterday. One individual recollects having yelled “yay” in the middle of the lobby. Seems everyone’s happy with the results!

LEOSU is the strongest, fastest-growing law enforcement and security police union in America,” stated LEOSU Organizing Director Steve Maritas, “And I promise you that LEOSU will deliver for our new members with Paragon just like we have for our other Paragon PSO members from around the country.”

Most recently the LEOSU was successful in organizing the 318 Paragon Systems, Inc protective service officers (PSO’s) working at and in charge of protecting thirty (30) federal facilities throughout New York City, the Bronx and Westchester. This includes 26 Federal Plaza, 290 Broad Street, DEA, Bowling Green and 201 Varick Street, which was a target of a deadly shooting of protective service officer Idrissa Camara back on August 21, 2015.

The LEOSU and its affiliate unions have also been successful in defeating the SPFPA in several other elections including the Department of Transportation, Federal Aviation Administration, GSA ROB Building, NASA HQ, Georgetown University, Catholic University and the Russell Knox Building in Quantico after SPFPA disclaimed interest in this group after LEOSU had filed an election.

SPFPA, PARAGON SYSTEMS, DECERTIFICATION ELECTION

The SPFPA is now facing a NLRB decertification election in Case Number: 27-RD-246013 with the Paragon System, Inc security officers in Salt Lake City, UT.
