Jersey City New Jersey- On April 4, 2016 the security officers who work on the New Jersey docks for Universal Protection Service UPS voted unanimously to Join the Law Enforcement Officers Security Unions (LEOSU).
The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) in Newark ran the mail ballot election.
Steve Maritas, Organizing Director for the LEOSU Union noted that these Universal Protection Service Security Officers have to have special waterfront licenses to work on the docks of New Jersey, and as such should be compensated by their special training according to the area rate or above.
Maritas noted, once we are certified by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) which should be in about ten (10) days, the Union, LEOSU and its attorney’s will begin the process of collective bargaining to improve wages, benefits and other conditions of employment.
The Law Enforcement Officers Security Unions (LEOSU) affiliated with the Law Enforcement Security & Police Benevolent Association (LEOS-PBA) have recently won several elections in the Washington DC area and presently are awaiting results of mail ballot elections. In addition the LEOSU is presently in the process of organizing several other locations in New York, New Jersey, Washington DC, Rhode Island, North Carolina and throughout the United States.
