Section 7 rights of the National Labor Relations Act (the Act) guarantees employees "the right to self-organization, to form, join, or assist labor organizations, to bargain collectively through representatives of their own choosing, and to engage in other concerted activities for the purpose of collective bargaining or other mutual aid or protection," as well as the right "to refrain from any or all such activities."
Now that we started our campaign as EXPECTED, the SPFPA International & LOU have begun their personal smear tactics against its own members which include Scott , Denise, Maryann and several other SPFPA Local 506 members as well as former SPFPA Organizing Director Steve Maritas who was asked by us to help the SPFPA Local 506 members get rid of this Corrupt SPFPA International Union headed by Hickey.
"Please don't fall for these slander tactics. When a person or group doesn't have any merits or accomplishments to stand on they resort to attacking their opponents. We've seen this in countless other arenas; most notably the political arena. This is just FAKE NEWS" - President Trump
While SPFPA is trying to denounce its own Local 506 members, this is nothing more then a SPFPA smokescreen to have you look away from the REAL issues and problems we are having as noted below.
Local 506 Membership ISSUES
Below are just a few of the reasons WHY WE NEED to Change Unions
Lou's Salary - Why is Lou Tartack Receiving a $41,332 A Year Salary Plus $6,682 in Health Benefits Paid For by SPFPA Local 506 While Working @ the Wells Fargo Center?
No Union Meetings - Why has SPFPA Local 506 President Lou Tartack refusing to hold quarterly Union meetings? What is he hiding? "Over the last 6 Years we only had one Union meeting which was held on 7/10/18. At the last SPFPA Local 506 Union meeting held on 7/10/18 we were promised by SPFPA International President Dave Hickey we would have quarterly meetings going forward. SPFPA President Lou Tartack promised us we would have an election of stewards in September 2018. Yet both these promises by Hickey & Tartack were just outright LIES. Both Hickey & Tartacks WORD Means NOTHING!"
NO Election of Shop Stewards - When was the last time you can remember the local having shop steward elections?
NO Union Representation - Lou takes our money each month yet he picks and chooses who he wishes to represent.
Scam Local 506 Union Election - In our last Local 506 Union election Lou hid units from us so we could NOT get a Fair Election. We were told Lou also visited unit shops and had members vote on site.
Both Lou & Joyce take trips using our DUES MONEY - What about all the TRIPS Lou and Joyce take with our Dues Money which they keep hidden from us? Lou & Joyce are now planning a trip to Lake Buena Vista in 2020 With Our Dues Money!
Local 506 Finincial Records - Lou is Refusing to Show all of the Members the Books & Financial Records of the Union WHY?
Subcontracting of Our Union Jobs - Lou has allowed management to subcontract our Jobs to NON-UNION employees. This is OUR Job Security!
SPFPA Threatens its Members Who Oppose Hickey, Lou or the SPFPA International Union - As noted by the internal charges brought against Scott Denny & Maryann Mount if you decide to challenge the SPFPA International Union, Lou or Hickey, or if you question all of the SPFPA CORRUPTION going on in this union, you will be slandered by SPFPA & Company. This is OUR Union NOT their Union!

The documents we obtained from the Department of Labor filed by SPFPA Region 2 Vice President Rick O'Quinn clearly show a CONFLICT of INTEREST and now warrants a Criminal Investigation into this matter by the Department of Labor.

Presently SPFPA Local 506 President Lou Tartack works @ the Wells Fargo Center while he gets paid from the Union. Our Dues Money! He should NOT be receiving a $41,332 Salary PLUS $6,682 in Health Benefits especially when he works at the Wells Fargo Center. This is WRONG!

Subject: International Union, SPFPA - Internal Charges
Mr. Denny and Ms. Mount:
The purpose of this communication is to clarify the Charges filed against you by International President David L. Hickey on or about March 15, 2019.
Due to oversight the Charges did not set forth the International Constitution provision violated. The Charges are currently in abeyance but are amended to reflect a filing pursuant to Article XXI which was amended as set forth in the attached Resolution of the International Executive Board.
Any further proceeding will be in accordance with Article XXI, Sections 1. and 14. as amended.
Gordon A. Gregory, General Counsel
International Union, SPFPA
Gregory, Moore, Brooks & Clark, PC
65 Cadillac Square, Suite 3727
Detroit, MI 48226
Internal Charges Brought By Maryann Mount & Scott Denny Against SPFPA Region 2 Vice President Rick O'Quinn's calling for a criminal investigation of O'Quinn who has failed to disclose his wife's ownership in two security companies & SPFPA's failure to disclose this information on its LM forms as required by law.
Patronus Systems Inc was also subject of an NLRB Unfair Labor charge brought by a competitor union of SPFPA in Case 09-CA-165689 whereby the UNION charge alleged, in pertinent part, that Patronus Systems Inc. (the “Employer”) is a “perfectly clear” successor and violated Section 8(a)(5) of the National Labor Relations Act by Unilaterally REDUCING PAY RATES for unit employees.
PLEASE NOTE: SPFPA VP Rick O'Quinn (r) is also the SENIOR ADVISER to SPFPA President Hickey.
However, under current Board law, the Employer was not a “perfectly clear” successor because it made CLEAR that it Intended to Change Terms and Conditions of Employment when it offered jobs to the Unit Employees. The Employer fully complied with current Board law in fixing initial terms by clearly announcing to employees specific changes in existing terms before or as they were offered employment. Moreover, the Employer thereafter met its obligations as a Burns successor to recognize and bargain with the Union, and the parties have been bargaining and have resolved all of the alleged unilateral changes aside from the allegation still on appeal.
