This victory comes off the heals of another great victory at Medstar Washington Hospital Center, whereby the special police officers, public safety officers and dispatchers voted in favor of LEOSU-DC representation. Not a day after winning that election the special police officers working at MedStar National Rehabilitation Hospital signed up to become members of the LEOSU-DC union joining the fight for RESPECT.

MedStar Washington Hospital Center is the largest private hospital in Washington, D.C. A member of MedStar Health, the not-for-profit Hospital Center is licensed for 926 beds.

LEOSU-DC, Steve Maritas Washington DC Organizing Director

Steve Maritas Organizing Director for the Law Enforcement Officers Security Unions (LEOSU-DC) stated “that this victory signifies a new movement in the Washington DC Capitol Region that the special police officers in the region are looking for real change and as such, the word is spreading that the LEOSU-DC is the security union to join. We are receiving many calls everyday from the officers in the Washington DC Capitol Region asking how they to can become members of the LEOSU-DC Union because they know our Union, LEOSU-DC will truly fight for the members we represent, we will not back down or be intimidated by any Union or by management alike. We are here to protect the interest of our members giving these officers a real voice in the workplace as well as the RESPECT our members truly deserve”. Maritas stated.

We now welcome 143 armed Omniplex security officers working in Washington DC and Virginia to the LEOSU-DC family.

The FDIC Omniplex World Services Corporation security officers are presently represented by the Service Employees International Union, Local 32BJ who could not appear on the ballot. Upon certification by the National Labor Relations Board the Law Enforcement Officers Security Unions (LEOSU-DC) will now become the new exclusive bargaining representative for these FDIC Omniplex security officers.

During this campaign Service Employees International Union, Local 32BJ ran an all out UNION BUSTING campaign visiting the work sites and homes of these officers in their attempt to have them vote NO Union. In addition to the above, SEIU Local 32BJ union thugs ran a personal smear campaign against LEOSU-DC Director Steve Maritas.

The FDIC Omniplex World Services Corporation security officers working both in Washington DC and Virginia noted for the last 3 years SEIU Local 32BJ was no where to be found, charging unprecedented high dues and forcing Omniplex security officers into SEIU Local 32BJ’s healthcare program despite having their own healthcare coverage noted the majority of Omniplex security officers working at the FDIC.

In addition these same FDIC Omniplex World Services Corporation security officers noted “the personal attacks made against Mr. Maritas only made us want to join LEOSU-DC even more”. “This was evident by the fact that we voted 70 to 1 in favor of the Law Enforcement Officers Security Unions LEOSU-DC representation” stated one of SEIU Local 32BJ shop stewards.

Section 9(b)(3) of the Act prohibits the Board from certifying any labor organization “as the representative of employees in a bargaining unit of guards if such organization admits to membership, or is affiliated directly or indirectly with an organization which admits to membership, employees other than guards.” Local 32BJ is a labor organization which is affiliated directly or indirectly with an organization which admits non-guards as members, namely, Service Employees International Union. Accordingly, Local 32BJ is a mixed guard/non-guard union, and the Board is prohibited by Section 9(b)(3) from certifying Local 32BJ as the representative of a bargaining unit of guards. Further, the Board has held that mixed guard/non-guard unions are disqualified from taking advantage of the Board’s election processes, including the privilege of being placed on the ballot.’ See, University of Chicago, 272 NLRB 873, 876 (1984).
