On February 10, 2020, as a result of a secret ballot election conducted by the Connecticut State Board of Labor Relations (CSBLR), the Stamford BOE Security Guardsunanimouslyvoted to dump the Teamsters and join UPSEU.
UPSEU Regional Director, Matt Geer, stated, “The membership grew tired of the lackluster representation they were receiving from the Teamsters and were determined to find the proper representation. After witnessing the representation that UPSEU was providing to the Paraeducators, as well as the many improvements made at the bargaining table on their behalf, the Security Guards’ Executive Board was confident that UPSEU was the union the membership was so desperately seeking. After UPSEU met with the entire membership, it became clear that a huge weight was being liftedoff their shoulders as they knew they finally had a professional, knowledgeable, and experienced labor union to provide them with exceptional representation and expertise at the bargaining table.”
We welcome the Stamford BOE Security Guards to the growing UPSEU family!
