LEOSU Calls for a DOL Investigation of SPFPA Region 2 Vice President Rick O'Quinn and his Wife&#
LEOSU Calls for a DOL Investigation of SPFPA Region 2 Vice President Rick O'Quinn and his Wife's Ownership of Patronus Systems Inc which Raises Conflict of Interest Questions.
A Department of Labor LM-30 Report presently filed by SPFPA Region 2 Vice President Rick Dallas O’Quinn on 3/24/2019 clearly shows his Wife Mabel O’Quinn is the Owner of Patronus Systems Inc a security company that provides protective security officers PSO on federal protective contracts/subcontracts at various federal buildings throughout the US. Certain PSO’s employed by Patronus are REPRESENTED by SPFPA Local Unions. THIS IS TRULY A CONFLICT OF INTEREST if NOT Criminal. The 2018 LM-30 report shows the Amount or value of interest, transaction, benefit, arrangement, income or loan was $693,076.95.
SPFPA LM-30 Report for 2017 clearly shows O’Quinns Wife Made $870,388.00 Dollars. This report also notes SPFPA represents Patronus PSO’s. How Can this be? How can SPFPA Region 2 Vice President Rick O’Quinn hold a number of leadership positions with SPFPA while this Conflict of Interest exists? The $870,388.00 does NOT include O’Quinn’s $161,761 SPFPA salary and disbursements. View the official government LM-30 documents filed by SPFPA VP O'Quinn below.
The BIG Question here is how can the SPFPA International Union represent Patronus Systems Inc PSO’s when SPFPA Region 2 Vice President Rick O’Quinn’s Wife is the Owner of Patronus Systems Inc? Also is it OK that SPFPA VP Rick O’Quinn’s Wife Made over 25 Million Dollars according to government records?
It should be noted, while the Labor Management Reporting and Disclosure Act of 1959 (also “LMRDA” or the “Landrum–Griffin Act”), clearly states every officer and every employee (other than an employee performing exclusively clerical or custodial services) of a labor organization must file an Officer & Employee Report, Form LM-30, if he, or his spouse or minor child, directly or indirectly, had certain economic interests during the past fiscal year, our research indicates that SPFPA had failed to file this conflict of information between SPFPA Region 2 Vice President Rick O’Quinn and his wife Mabel O’Quinn, Patronus Systems, Inc President going back to 2010. It should also be noted we did not find any information or LM-30 filings for O’Quinn’s other company Patronus Systems Partnership LLC.
Not until the Law Enforcement Officers Security Unions, LEOSU started to investigate this conflict of interest Scam as noted by a email to SPFPA President Hickey and its Executive Board dated 3/5/2019, (after SPFPA Vice President Joseph McCray let it known to security employers about this Conflict of Interest between O’Quinn and Patronus in a political attempt to oust O’Quinn we have been told), and thereafter by the fact that two SPFPA Local 506 members had actually filed internal charges against O’Quinn with the SPFPA International Union on 3/18/19, calling for a criminal investigation of this matter by the Department of Labor, did the SPFPA even attempted to take any type of action to comply with the law.
Patronus Systems, Inc has just been awarded the entire Commonwealth of Kentucky FPS contract as noted by the above flyer below. The Patronus notice clearly notes: Terms and conditions of employment will be set in accordance with Patronus Systems Inc. Policy. Patronus will NOT honor the Collective Bargaining Agreement or the past practices of your current employer.
Most recently the LEOSU filed an election Case No. 09-RC-243304 with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) to represent the Paragon Systems / Patronus Systems inc protective service officers working at various federal buildings throughout the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Prior to the start of this NLRB hearing, LEOSU filed a motion to have SPFPA removed from the ballot due to this conflict of interest. You can view our motion here.
In reply SPFPA’s attorney James M. Moore responded below with their own motion to remain on the ballot. You can view Intervenor International Union, Security Police and Fire Professionals of America (SPFPA) Statement in Opposition to Petitioner LEOSU, LEOS-PBA’s Motion to Dismiss here.
