  • Info request on FOP & IUPA

    If anyone has any opinions of collective bargaining representation by FOP or IUPA, I'd appreciate it. Any experiences in in southern florida would be particularly useful...

    Thanks in advance,

      I've been retired a couple years, but the FOP was the bargaining unit for the City of Miami and the Dade County PBA represented the other 10,000 or so local, county, state and federal officers in South Florida.

        In Alabama, the FOP does not represent any agencies I know of as a bargaining agent, nor does the IUPA. Police unions really don't exist as such in Alabama. Of course, that could change with the passage of time. The FOP does encourage and support legislation that benefits police officers and their families.

          I have been a member of the FOP for many years since I first became a police officer. Now i'm a Special Agent and belong to FLEOA in addition to FOP (1811's are not part of any bargaining group, but FLEOA sort of is a voice for us). In terms of collective bargaining representation for police officers, it depends on what part of the country you live in. In areas such as the Midwest, the FOP has a very strong presence, but in California for example they are more of a social group as many officers are under PORAC. My experince with the FOP has been positive and they have a VERY strong voice in DC with members of congress as well as the POTUS.

            IUPA and IBPO are divisions of the teamsters. Never was a member of them however I know a few bases which had them as their union. Never really heard anything negative as they had access to the national teamsters union when doing contract negotiations.

            Ive been a member of the FOP for about 8 years now and have no complaints other than my current lodge is slow as hell (7 years) in getting my agency a new contract. I prefer the FOP over the PBA because the PBA is not national organized but rather smaller units in larger agencies.
            I don't answer recruitment messages....
