Call to Arms for all Public Employees - HB418 and SB204

April 24 2015 | Whats New

The LAFOP is committed to protecting the rights of its members in Louisiana.  Remember that you are part of an organization that represents law enforcement officers from Greenwood to New Orleans and many points between.

This session we have fought against losing our constitutionally protected state supplemental pay.  Our membership responded and was instrumental in having HB 523 stopped. 

Well the next task is in front of us, HB 418 and SB 204.  Both of these bills will prohibit your voluntary payroll deduction for your dues to your local organization.

It has been said that the reason for this legislation is that organizations, like ours, is using its dues money to pay for “Planned Parenthood”.  What we know is that local FOP lodges pay for things with their dues money like supporting Easter Seals, Torch Run, and the Saint Baldrick’s Foundation.

Remember that a majority of the success that we have had in this Legislative Session is due to the foresight of our membership.  The members decided that it was important for the LAFOP to have a governmental liaison to properly represent them in Baton Rouge. 

So again we are asking members to do one simple thing and click to let the Senate and House of Representative Labor and Industrial Relations Committee members know that as a supporter of the LAFOP and public safety you are opposed to both of these pieces of legislation.
