St. Louis Police Leadership Organization (NAPO) wins representation for Sergeants CBA.
The St. Louis Police Leadership Organization will represent all Sergeants in a Collective Bargaining Agreement. The vote was conducted on August 1 & 2, 2012. Results were as follows:
Eligible Voters: 212
Total Votes Cast: 186
Votes for SLPOA: 65
VOTES FOR SLPLO: 121
Unfortunately the vote for representation by the St. Louis Police Officers Association (FOP #68) was unsuccessful. The battle leading up to the election was heated and the Leadership Organization effectively played a tremendous amount of disinformation & downright untruthfulness. The SLPLO has already expressed its opposition to fair share and stated it does not believe it should openly criticize the policies of management. Unfortunately we feel this will result in poor representation for the St. Louis Sergeants but only time will tell. The FOP will not give up and will fight to give the Sergeants effective FOP representation in the future.
