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.

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.

SPFPA VP Rick O’Quinn Patronus Systems Inc Conflict of Interest SCAM EXPOSED

BREAKING NEWS: Despite overwhelming Evidence the SPFPA LEGAL TEAM Concludes there is no (CONFLICT of INTEREST) Between SPFPA Region 2 Vice President Rick O’Quinn & his Wife’s Security Company PATRONUS Systems Inc whom SPFPA admits represents certain Patornous Systems Inc PSO’s. WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW.

SPFPA, PATRONUS SYSTEMS INC, SPFPA GORDON GREGORY LEGAL OPINION ON THE CONFLICT OF INTEREST BETWEEN SPFPA & PATRONUS SYSTEMS INC

Here is the Actual SPFPA Legal Opinion cited by SPFPA in the above video from its Cocksure General Counsel Gordon Gregory which claims after further investigation there is NO Conflict of Interest between any SPFPA Employee and Patronus Systems Inc. It should be noted SPFPA Cocksure General Counsel Gordon Gregory ADMITS a LM-30 Form was filed by SPFPA as noted below because SPFPA Region 2 Vice President Rick O’Quinn’s Wife is the President of Patronus Systems Inc a security company that provides security services on Federal Protective Service sites and SPFPA REPRESENTS certain PSO Patronus PSO’s. Form LM-30 Labor Organization Officer and Employee Report states: Every officer and every employee (other than an employee performing exclusively clerical or custodial services) of a labor organization must file an Officer & Employee Report, Form LM-30, if he, or his spouse or minor child, directly or indirectly, had certain economic interests during the past fiscal year.

LM-30 Report by SPFPA VP Rick OQuinn Patronus Systems Inc

A Department of Labor LM-30 Report presently filed by SPFPA Region 2 Vice President Rick Dallas O’Quinn on 3/24/2019 clearly shows his Wife Mabel O’Quinn is the Owner of Patronus Systems Inc a security company that provides protective security officers PSO on federal protective contracts/subcontracts at various federal buildings throughout the US. Certain PSO’s  employed by Patronus are REPRESENTED by SPFPA Local Unions. THIS IS TRULY A CONFLICT OF INTEREST if NOT Criminal. The 2018 LM-30 report shows the Amount or value of interest, transaction, benefit, arrangement, income or loan was $693,076.95.  You can view the full report here.

LM-30 Report by SPFPA VP Rick OQuinn Patronus Systems Inc

SPFPA LM-30 Report for 2017 clearly shows O’Quinns Wife Made $870,388.00 Dollars. This report also notes SPFPA represents Patronus PSO’s. How Can this be? How can SPFPA Region 2 Vice President Rick O’Quinn hold a number of leadership positions with SPFPA while this Conflict of Interest exists? The $870,388.00 does NOT include O’Quinn’s $161,761 SPFPA salary and disbursements.

SPFPA 2017 Salaries as noted by their LM-2 filings

SPFPA, SPFPA Vice President Rick O'Quinn, Patronus Sytems Inc

The BIG Question here is how can the SPFPA International Union represent Patronus Systems Inc PSO’s when SPFPA Region 2 Vice President Rick O’Quinn’s Wife is the Owner of Patronus Systems Inc? Also is it OK that SPFPA VP Rick O’Quinn’s Wife Made $693,076.95?

SPFPA, SPFPA Vice President Rick O'Quinn, Patronus Sytems Inc

Look how much Money SPFPA Vice President Rick O’Quinn’s Wife Made Here $870,388 Dollars off this SPFPA/Patronus Conflict of Interest Scam in 2017.

It should be noted, while the Labor Management Reporting and Disclosure Act of 1959 (also “LMRDA” or the “Landrum–Griffin Act”), clearly states every officer and every employee (other than an employee performing exclusively clerical or custodial services) of a labor organization must file an Officer & Employee Report, Form LM-30, if he, or his spouse or minor child, directly or indirectly, had certain economic interests during the past fiscal year, our research indicates that SPFPA had failed to file this conflict of information between SPFPA Region 2 Vice President Rick O’Quinn and his wife Mabel O’Quinn, Patronus Systems, Inc President going back to 2010. It should also be noted we did not find any information or LM-30 filings for O’Quinn’s other company Patronus Systems Partnership LLC.

 

Patronus Systems Inc Kentucky

Patronus Systems, Inc has just been awarded the entire Commonwealth of Kentucky FPS contract as noted by the above flyer below. The Patronus notice clearly notes: Terms and conditions of employment will be set in accordance with Patronus Systems Inc. Policy. Patronus will NOT honor the Collective Bargaining Agreement or the past practices of your current employer.

SPFPA, PATRONUS, DAVE HICKEY EMAIL, SPFPA Rick OQuinn

Not until the Law Enforcement Officers Security Unions, LEOSU started to investigate this conflict of interest Scam as noted by the email above to SPFPA President Hickey and its Executive Board dated 3/5/2019, (after SPFPA Vice President Joseph McCray let it known to security employers about this Conflict of Interest between O’Quinn and Patronus in a political attempt to oust O’Quinn we have been told), and thereafter by the fact that two SPFPA Local 506 members had actually filed internal charges against O’Quinn with the SPFPA International Union on 3/18/19, calling for a criminal investigation of this matter by the Department of Labor, did the SPFPA even attempted to take any type of action to comply with the law. 

SPFPA RICK O'QUINN, SPFPA Patronus, Patronus Systems inc, Mabel O'Quinn Patronus Systems Inc

SPFPA Local 506, SPFPA Rick O'Quinn Charges, SPFPA Dave Hickey

Internal Charges (PRESS HERE TO VIEW) were filed by two (2) SPFPA Local 506 members on 3/18/19 asking for a criminal investigation into SPFPA Vice President Rick O’Quinn wife’s ownership of Patronus Systems Inc and the conflict of interest it presents to SPFPA Vice President Rick O’Quinn and the members he seeks to represent as well as those SPFPA members he presently represents. SPFPA International Union Secretary-Treasurer Don Eagle and SPFPA President Hickey refused to hear these charges WHY? – WE DO NOW KNOW FOR SURE, THAT SPFPA DID TRY TO COVER UP THIS CONFLICT OF INTEREST SCAM BY FILING LM-30 REPORTS WITH THE DEPARTMENT OF LABOR AFTER THE FACT!

Gordon Gregory, Gregory Moore Jeakle & Brooks, SPFPA, SPFPA President David Hickey

In a legal opinion to International President David L. Hickey, SPFPA General Counsel Gordon Gregory try’s to mock LEOSU Organizing Director Steve Maritas for Exposing this CONFLICT of INTEREST by SPFPA Region 2 Vice President Rick O’Quinn while downplaying the fact that there are no laws requiring LM-2 forms to be filed with the Department of Labor. Gregory further notes that a LM-30 report was filed as required by law. There has been full compliance with the law.

SPFPA, SPFPA LM-30 Reports, SPFPA International Union, SPFPA Rick O'Quinn

We disagree with SPFPA General Counsel Gordon Gregory’s cocksure legal opinion that SPFPA is in full compliance, since Patronus Systems Inc started back in 2010 based on its incorporation filings, and SPFPA is required to file a LM-30 Report for each year going back to 2010. Which they FAILED to do. CAN YOU SPELL COVER UP?

The documents we obtained below from the Department of Labor filed by SPFPA Region 2 Vice President Rick O’Quinn clearly shows a CONFLICT of INTEREST. Not only does O’Quinn admit to his wife owning Patronus Systems, Inc but he also admits SPFPA represents certain Patronus PSO’s. This clearly warrants a Criminal Investigation into this matter by the Department of Labor.

In an other development the LEOSU filed a motion in Case No. RC-09243304 raising a conflict of Interest issue between SPFPA and Patronus Systems Inc. In reply SPFPA’s attorney James M. Moore responded below with their own motion to remain on the ballot.

SPFPA, James Moore, SPFPA Motion, SPFPA Rick O'QUINN, SPFPA International Union, SPFPA Dave Hickey

SPFPA Attorney James M. Moore claims in his response motion that “The Claimed disqualifying Conflict of Interest is Entirely Unsupported by facts”. Moore further claims this is nothing more than a “WILD CLAIM”. Maybe Moore should look at the LM-30 government filings made by his client SPFPA below. Is Moore claiming these government filings are FRAUDULENT? Maybe Moore should read his own law partner Gordon Gregory’s June 20, 2019, cocksure legal opinion letter acknowledging that the SPFPA just filed a LM-30 form with the Department of Labor Exposing this SPFPA / Patronus Conflict of Interest Relationship!

SPFPA President Dave Hickey

Faced with All This Conflict of Interest Information Against SPFPA VP Rick O’Quinn and his wife owning Patronus Systems Inc and SPFPA Representing Patronus PSO’s, Why Hasn’t SPFPA President David L. Hickey or the SPFPA Executive Board Taken Action to REMOVE O’Quinn? 

The SPFPA has a Long History of Corruption and Embezzlement under the Leadership of SPFPA International President David L. Hickey as noted by these court documents.

WHAT ELSE IS HICKEY HIDING? Is Hickey is a silent partner himself or receiving some type of kickback? One must wonder WHY SPFPA Hickey is refusing to remove O’Quinn from office and WHY O’Quinn continues to hold the position of Senior Adviser to SPFPA President Hickey? Please Note Disclaimer: We are NOT saying Hickey is receiving KICKBACKS or that he is a silent partner in Patronus Systems Inc. We are though questioning WHY is he refusing to terminate SPFPA Vice President Rick O’Quinn and how can SPFPA represent PSO’s when O’Quinn’s wife is the owner of Patronus Systems Inc?

SPFPA Region 2 Vice President Rick O’Quinn was elected by the delegates at the SPFPA convention in 2015 to represent its members interest to improve wages, benefits and other conditions of employment. On the other hand his wife Mabel O’Quinn President of Patronus Systems Inc. clearly has taken a opposite view in regards to its employees by REDUCING the PAY RATES of its Patronus security officers as noted above. What’s wrong with this picture?

 

On April 8, 2019 SPFPA Director At Large / Organizing Dwayne B. Phillips sent a letter to the same Kentucky security officers who are applying for a new job with Patronus Systems Inc. asking them to signup again with SPFPA.  Can you see the conflict of interest here?

Based on the April 8, 2019 SPFPA Organizing letter SPFPA Director At Large / Organizing Dwayne B. Phillips offered these Kentucky officers the use of $40,000 for Union business if they just come home. Did Phillips just offer these Kentucky Officers a $40,000 BRIBE?

“The treasury for Local 110 is still in place (over $40,000) to use for local Union business.” – SPFPA Director At Large / Organizing Dwayne B. Phillips.

 

It should also be noted, SPFPA Vice President Rick O’Quinn is also the Senior Adviser to SPFPA President David L. Hickey. Did O’Quinn advise SPFPA President Hickey & SPFPA Director At Large Dwayne B. Phillips to organize this Kentucky unit to PROTECT O’Quinn’s Wife’s company Patronus Systems Inc Interest by Offering these Kentucky Officers $40,000 Dollars to Come Home?

A further review of SPFPA Local 110 LM-4 forms clearly show something is seriously wrong at SPFPA Local 110: Item 20 Title: THIS LM REPORT IS BEING SIGNED BY THE INTERNATIONAL PRESIDENT IN THAT THE CURRENT LOCAL PRESIDENT (B. BAUMANN) REFUSES TO SIGN.

In a SPFPA flyer announcement, SPFPA held a meeting at the Holiday Inn Express in Louisville, Kentucky on June 12, 2019 and June 13, 2019 in their attempt to organize these soon to be Patronus Systems Inc security officers  working on the Federal Protective Service Kentucky contract. Are we to believe SPFPA Vice President Rick O’Quinn did NOT know his wife’s Company Patronus Systems Inc was just awarded the ENTIRE FPS Kentucky contract? 

Dwayne Philips showed up at my post at 10:23 am and at 10:28 am. Asking to speak with me because I was “the man”. Said that the CEO / President was willing to fly in to speak to ME alone overnight. Wow ! Desperate, wouldn’t you say – A Kentucky Security Officer

Patronus Systems Inc is set to takeover this FPS Kentucky Contract on July 1, 2019.

Should SPFPA be successful in Organizing this Group Who Will SPFPA Represent? The Patronus Officers or SPFPA Rick O’Quinn’s Wife who is the President of Patronus Systems Inc and who is NOT going to Honor the Previous CBA?

SPFPA President Dave Hickey

Faced with All This Information Against SPFPA VP Rick O’Quinn Why Hasn’t SPFPA President David L. Hickey Taken Action to REMOVE O’Quinn from Office? – Is Hickey a Secret Partner in PATRONUS SYSTEMS INC?

Report of Officers and Employees of Labor Organizations (29 U.S.C. 432)

SEC. 202. (a) Every officer of a labor organization and every employee of a labor organization (other than an employee performing exclusively clerical or custodial services) shall file with the Secretary a signed report listing and describing for his preceding fiscal year-

(1) any stock, bond, security, or other interest, legal or equitable, which he or his spouse or minor child directly or indirectly held in, and any income or any other benefit with monetary value (including reimbursed expenses) which he or his spouse or minor child derived directly or indirectly from, an employer whose employees such labor organization represents or is actively seeking to represent, except payments and other benefits received as a bona fide employee of such employer;

(2) any transaction in which he or his spouse or minor child engaged, directly or indirectly, involving any stock, bond, security, or loan to or from, or other legal or equitable interest in the business of an employer whose employees such labor organization represents or is actively seeking to represent;

According to SPFPA government filings SPFPA Vice President Rick O’Quinn received a salary of $142,298 which included disbursements and Patronus Systems Inc had average potential value of 2.4 Million dollars, 9.7% since June 2018.

As you can see by SPFPA LM-2 filings there is NO mention of SPFPA Vice President’s wife’s interest in PATRONUS SYSTEMS INC.

NLRB Rules in Favor of LEOSU and LEOSU-DC in Two Separate Paragon Systems Inc Election Cases in NY and DC

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Washington DC & New York City – The Law Enforcement Officers Security Unions LEOSU & LEOSU-DC won two major National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) decisions in two separate regions, region 5 and region 29 concerning Paragon Systems, Inc. In the Washington DC NLRB decision the Board ruled in Case 05-RC-234968  that the Board has  considered the evidence and arguments presented by the parties, and for the reasons described below, I conclude that the Intervenor has not established that either a Contract or successor bar applies in this case. Accordingly, the Board conclude that a question concerning representation exists,and they are directing an election in this matter.

Soon after this NLRB decision the Federal Contract Guards of America FCGOA, disclaimed all interest in this group and Paragon Systems, Inc then legally recognized the LEOSU as the exclusive bargaining collective representative for All full-time and regular part-time protective security officers and sergeants employed by the Employer performing guard duties at the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services facilities currently located at 20 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, and 111 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Washington, D.C.; but excluding all office clerical employees, professional employees, managerial employees, and supervisors as defined in the Act.

In another NLRB decision handed down by the NLRB on May 15, 2019, in Case No. 29-RC-229372 against the National League of Justice and Security Professionals (NLJSP) the Board ruled in its  HEARING OFFICER’S REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS ON OBJECTIONS that this report contains my findings and recommendations regarding the Petitioner’s objections to the election in the above referenced case. For the reasons contained herein, I recommend overruling the Petitioner’s objections and issuing a Certification of Representative.

https://www.nlrb.gov/case/29-RC-229372

Upon a petition filed on October 15, 2018, by National League of Justice and Security Professionals (NLJSP), herein called the Petitioner, and pursuant to a Stipulated Election Agreement signed by the Petitioner, Paragon Systems, Inc., herein called the Employer, and by Law Enforcement Officers Security Unions LEOSU, LEOS-PBA, herein called the Intervenor, and approved by the Acting Regional Director on February 11, 2019, an election by mail ballot was conducted on February 25, among the employees employed in the following unit: All full-time and regular part-time armed and unarmed security officers employed by Paragon Systems, Inc. at the Federal Protective Service sites located in Manhattan, the Bronx, West Nyack, Yonkers, New Rochelle, White Plains, and Peekskill, New York, covered under Paragon Systems, Inc.’s June 1, 2018, service contract with the United States Government, but excluding all other employees and supervisors as defined by Section 2(11) of the Act.

The Tally of Ballots, made available to the parties pursuant to the Board’s Rules and Regulations on March 20, showed the following results:

Approximate number of eligible voters 315
Number of void ballots 9
Number of ballots cast for the Petitioner 7
Number of ballots cast for the Intervenor 167
Number of votes cast against participating labor organization 34
Number of valid votes counted 208
Number of challenged ballots 1
Number of valid votes counted plus challenged ballots 209

Challenges are not sufficient in number to affect the results of the election. A majority of the valid votes counted has been cast for the Intervenor.

Recommendation

I have recommended overruling the Petitioner’s objections.

Accordingly, I further recommend that the Intervenor be certified as the exclusive collective bargaining agent of the following appropriate unit: All full-time and regular part-time armed and unarmed security officers employed by Paragon Systems, Inc. at the Federal Protective Service sites located in Manhattan, -the Bronx, West Nyack, Yonkers, New Rochelle, White Plains, and Peekskill, New York, covered under Paragon Systems,. Inc.’s June 1, 2018, service contract with the United States Government, but excluding all other employees and supervisors as defined by Section 2(11) of the Act.

With this major ruling by the NLRB on May 15, 2019, in favor of LEOSU and against the National League of Justice and Security Professionals (NLJSP) it seems this was a death blow for the NLJSP who at a membership of just 175 members had just disclaimed interest in a unit consisting of 70 members at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration as well as disclaiming interest at the Department of Education and Housing and Urban development Facility another Paragon Systems, Inc unit in Washington DC, Case Number: 05-RC-241434.

LEOSU’s Attorney Files Motion to Dismiss SPFPA’s Frivolous Lawsuit Over SPFPA Union Corruption YouTube Videos

LEOSU Files Motion to Dismiss SPFPA’s Frivolous Lawsuit Over Publication of SPFPA Union Corruption YouTube Videos.

Detroit Michigan – On 5/10/19 LEOSU’s attorney Thomas Nunley had filed a motion with the judge overseeing a case involving a frivolous lawsuit filed by SPFPA President David L. Hickey and the International Union, Security Police and Fire Professionals of America SPFPA over published YouTube organizing video’s created & uploaded in New York exposing SPFPA union corruption within its organization. You can view LEOSU’s motion to dismiss here.
Below are other related documents and exhibits relating to this case.

LEOSU Organizing Director Steve Maritas noted he is not worried about this frivolous lawsuit filed by Hickey and the SPFPA union since the Truth is an absolute defense.

THE DEFENDANT LEOSU UNION ELECTION VIDEOS, POSTED ON “YOUTUBE.COM” ARE ALL EXPLICITLY AND ABSOLUTELY TRUE – PROTECTED SPEECH UNDER THE FIRST AMENDMENT

The Defendant LEOSU videos were all carefully written and researched with factual verification and documentation. The truth is that Plaintiff SPFPA has had dozens of its officers criminally indicted and convicted. (See News Articles and Reports of SPFPA Officer convictions attached as Exhibit “A”).

The truth is that Defendant LEOSU has beaten Plaintiff SPFPA in over a dozen contested union elections. (See SPFPA Losses and NLRB Records attached as Exhibit “B”)

The truth is that the FBI did raid the home of Plaintiff David Hickey. See Newsmax Article

The truth is that Plaintiff SPFPA has a long history of corruption and embezzlement under the leadership of Plaintiff David Hickey, who has been at the helm of Plaintiff SPFPA since 2000.

The truth is a complete defense to a defamation action. See Andrews v. Prudential Sec., 160 F.3d 304, 308 (6th Cir. 1998); See also Baggs v. Eagle-Picher Indus., Inc., 957 F.2d 268, 273 (6th Cir. 1992) (citing Cochrane v. Wittbold, 359 Mich. 402, 102 N.W.2d 459, 463 (Mich. 1960)). This privilege extends to a great variety of subjects, and includes matters of public concern, public men, and candidates for office.” New York Times Co. v. Sullivan, 376 U.S. 254, 281-82 (1964).

DEFENDANTS’ FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS TO POST AND USE VIDEOS IN
NEW YORK AND WASHINGTON D.C. – ARE PROTECTED SPEECH – WITH
ANTI-SLAPP LIABILITY AGAINST PLAINTIFF – WHICH PLAINTIFF IS TRYING TO ILLEGALLY INVADE

The Plaintiffs are waging a campaign to try to “crush” the Defendants labor union, LEOSU. This “harassment campaign” has included Plaintiffs’ posting over fifty (50) “YouTube” videos attacking Defendant LEOSU, and Defendant Maritas, and filing multiple fraudulent lawsuits, to run-up Defendants’ attorney fees.

Plaintiffs’ David Hickey and SPFPA openly admit their illegal and fraudulent harassment strategy against the Defendants in mocking and threatening emails.

See the attached email from Plaintiff SPFPA to Defendant Maritas, boasting of
illegitimate legal tactics (See Exhibit “C”). See also the e-mail dated May 10, 2019 by the Plaintiff David Hickey sent to union members – boasting of his strategy of costly and fraudulent litigation as a strategy to consume the union dues of Defendant union’s members. (See Exhibit“D”).

Plaintiffs’ strategy is simple: force Defendants to expend union member dues on litigation; and then accuse Defendant of “wasting” union members’ dues on litigation.

Plaintiffs’ intend to attempt to escape New York’s and Washington D.C.’s “anti-SLAPP” laws. “SLAPP” is an acronym for a “strategic lawsuit against public participation.” Ernst v. Carrigan, 814 F.3d 116, 117 (2d Cir. 2016). “SLAPP suits come in many forms camouflaged as ordinary lawsuits. The conceptual thread that binds them is that they are suits without substantial merit that are brought by private interests to ‘stop citizens from exercising their political rights or to punish them for having done so.’” Gordon v. Marrone, 590 N.Y.S.2d 649, 656 (1992); (citing Pring, SLAPPs: Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation, 7 PACE ENVTL LREV 3 [1989]).

SLAPP suits function by forcing the defendant into a judicial proceeding where the plaintiff can force the expenses of a defense upon the target defendant. See Gordon, 590 N.Y.S.2d 649 (1992). As the emails discussed above show, Plaintiffs’ only purpose in this frivolous action is to waste Defendant’s resources and “bleed the Defendants dry.” (See Exhibit “D”-mass e-mail from Plaintiff David Hickey to LEOSU members explaining Plaintiffs’ frivolous litigation strategy).

Plaintiffs’ should not be rewarded by filing in Michigan’s Courts, where only Plaintiff has contacts, to harass a rival union and its members.

Fearing Another Defeat Against LEOSU-DC – SPFPA Leaves its Members at the Russell Knox Building in Quantico VA High and Dry

SPFPA

The National Labor Relations Board Order Approving Withdrawal and Order Revoking SPFPA’s Certification as the exclusive bargaining representative of all full-time and part-time armed and unarmed security specialist at the Russell Knox Building, located in Quantico, VA working for Hana Industries, inc.

Letter from SPFPA President David L. Hickey Disclaiming Interest in the Security Specialists working for Hana Industries, Inc at the Russell Knox Building, located in Quantico, VA. SPFPA disclaimed interest in this particular group after the Law Enforcement Security Officers LEOSU-DC filed an election to represent these 55 officers. SPFPA who feared another defeat against LEOSU-DC chose to disclaim interest rather then face LEOSU-DC head to head in a NLRB election. SPFPA’s decision to withdraw its interest effective immediately, leaving these officers high and dry, now causes these security specialists to become non-union employees until such a time the NLRB conducts a new election whereby the LEOSU-DC had petitioned for.

 

Most recently SPFPA Organizing Director Dwayne Bedford Phillips, has lost several union elections throughout the country, including Jefferson University Hospital, fourteen (14) state universities throughout Pennsylvania, Cape Cod Hospital, Georgetown University and Law Center and Catholic University in Washington DC just to name a few.

SPFPA is also facing another Decertification election this time at the Federal Communications Commission FCC filed by the Governed United Security Professionals in Washington DC. Omniplex World Services Corporation, is the present employer at this location.
