The Minnesota Public Employees Association, Inc. (MNPEA) was established to provide Public Employees in Minnesota with an alternative to the standard National and International Unions.  The Minnesota Public Employees Association is structured to give the Members control over their representation.  The Business Agents and Board answer to the Members who, by the Constitution, have an override authority on the decisions of the Board.  MNPEA is a non-partisan association.  This is truly a New Concept in Labor Representation for the 21st Century.

Why MNPEA has Lawyers

2019-12-05 05:40:46 poster2

Whether a CO or an LEO, MNPEA has your back with on and off duty legal protection.

Why? Here’s a perfect example.

CBS News is reporting that over 25 “jail officers” in Baltimore have been charged with using excessive force. All were members of a tactical unit operating in four detention facilities.

Our jobs require us to use force. That can lead to legal repercussions.
We do not know the guilt or innocence of the accused, but we do know everyone is entitled to due process.

MNPEA members always have that legal protection.

Today is 9/11/19.

Only 18 short years ago the United States of America was attacked by Islamic Terrorists flying planes full of our loved ones into the World Trade Centers and the Pentagon. Flight 93 fell short of it’s goal due to the bravery of it’s passengers.

Brave first responders poured into the burning and collapsing World Trade Centers. In all 2,977 people were killed, including 343 Firefighters and 71 Law Enforcement Officers.

MNPEA thanks our First responders, Law Enforcement Officers, who keep us safe, and the Corrections Officers who keep the terrorists incarcerated.
