2020 LEOSU-CA / Paragon Los Angeles Leadership Committee Meeting

On December 12, 2020, The Law Enforcement Officers Security Unions LEOSU-CA, LEOS-PBA Paragon Los Angeles Leadership Committee met using the video conference program Zoom. LEOSU-CA Organizing Director Steve Maritas chaired the meeting attended by at least 15 Los Angeles Paragon leadership committee members. First order of business was to discuss the the switch over from their present healthcare provider to the company's plan effective January 1, 2021 and our goal of bringing in a Kaiser Permanente healthcare plan as well as several other affordable plans. 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.

LEOSU LEGAL TEAM MEETS TO DICUSS THE NEW LEOSU - CA STRUCTURE FOR PARAGON PSO Officers in California

The Old Saying Goes " YOU ARE ONLY AS STRONG AS YOU LEGAL TEAM"

Friday 10/23/2020 - Yesterday the LEOSU Legal Team which is made up of three (3) Law Firms Beins, Axelrod, P.C.Lally & Misir LLP and Nunley Wheelock, P.C. took part in a two hour meeting to discuss setting up the structure of our new California National Union LEOSU-CA once LEOSU is certified by the NLRB to represent the 600 plus Paragon PSO's in Los Angeles, San Diego, Riverside San Bernardino and Imperial Counties. Among the discussions was how to better service our members should they be suspended or terminated by your Employer, making sure arbitration cases are moved forward quickly and without delay vs dismissing them for lack of merit. Establishing a San Diego office as well as hiring a full-time and part-time Business Agent from the Southern California region from the ranks to better service our membership.

 

In addition to the above our LEOSU Legal team discussed our strategy to get the best CBA possible for our new LEOSU Local 1 & Local 52 members which included bringing in alternative group healthcare plans for our new members to choose from including a KAISER PERMANENTE healthcare Plan. LEOSU is also seeking to negotiate on your behalf with Paragon Systems a legal defense fund which would give each and everyone of you added protection coverage in regards to:  Protection from Duty related Civil lawsuits, Criminal charges, and Administrative incidents while protecting and serving the public as well as additional LEOSU benefits of legal representation for defense against administrative actions brought against the participant which involves the following Demotion, Transfer, Termination & Suspension.

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.
