In addition to the above, the leadership committee discussed upcoming local union elections, changing the local number from Local 3 to LEOSU-CA Local 1, assuming the old CBA prior to negotiating a new CBA in 2021, and how we can better communicate with both management and the membership through labor management zoom meetings and online membership meetings just to name a few issues. This 2 hour zoom meeting which will now be held monthly, will now set the course to lay the foundation to better service our members, strengthen our Union and to achieve the best possible Paragon Systems new CBA going forward. After the meeting, Maritas contacted Paragon with the committees proposal and the company had agreed to our Bridge Agreement proposal pending a new collective bargaining agreement.

Our Condolences go out to our Brother Patrick Underwood and his family and friends who was shot and killed at the Federal Building in Oakland Friday night while on duty during the riots.
Law Enforcement Officers Security Unions LEOSU-CA Organizing Director Steve Maritas noted that "all our members should take extra precautions while working and in uniform as these riots continue nationwide. While we all mourn the senseless killing of George Floyd and we respect the right of those who continue to protest, we say that these protests must be peaceful and "This Violence Must Stop."
“Violence as a way of achieving racial justice is both impractical and immoral. I am not unmindful of the fact that violence often brings about momentary results. Nations have frequently won their independence in battle. But in spite of temporary victories, violence never brings permanent peace.”
Martin Luther King Jr.
Jennifer Tong, the officer's supervisor, has set up a GoFundMe page to help his family.
