On April 13th, 2013, our lodge celebrated our 20th anniversary as a member with the Fraternal Order of Police.
When we began our lodge 25 years ago, our members primary objective and goal was to find an organization that we could turn to for additional support and guidance in the areas of labor and quality of life. The "Fraternal Order of Police" gave our members that encouragement and assistance with their active participation on issues that effected federal law enforcement officers throughout the United States.
With the many changes that have taken place within the federal government prior to and after 9/11, federal law enforcement officers have come to realize that it is important to maintain contact with labor organizations throughout the United States. Many officers working in the federal law enforcement community currently have labor groups defending their rights and promoting their concerns within their respected agencies.
It is very important that federal law enforcement officers keep an open channel with their labor groups, but as times change, we must look towards the future and evaluate what the future may hold for labor organizations in the federal government.
As federal employees, we have found that the federal government believes that work productivity can be enhanced and improved with the removal of all labor organizations within the federal sector.
Both our members and the "Fraternal Order of Police" feel, that if this action is allowed to escalate, major obstacles will be created that will seriously affect the rights and liberties of all federal employees.
As federal employees, we must remain cognizant of any actions taken by our political leaders in Washington, to terminate labor organizations within the federal government.
Over the next few years, both the members of our lodge and the "Fraternal Order of Police" will watch with great interest and concern, any attack or challenge on the part of the federal government to alienate or terminate our rights and liberties as federal employees.
Our lodge will continue to promote the ideals, ethics, principles and integrity of both our lodge members and federal law enforcement officers throughout this great nation.
