The NEPBA continues to keep the Vermont Labor Relations Board busy counting election ballots. The two latest vote tallies for the City of Vergennes Vermont Police and the Town of Lyndon Police Association bargaining units elected the New England Police Benevolent Association as the exclusive bargaining unit representative.

The New England Police Benevolent Association continues to expand in Vermont as Vergennes Police Union and Lyndon Police Association became the latest members of the largest and fastest growing law enforcement labor organization in Vermont.

The membership of the Vergennes City Police Union and the Town of Lyndon Police Association now joins their brother and sister officers from the City of Springfield, City of Rutland, City of Bennington, City of South Burlington, City of Saint Albans, City of Brattleboro, Town of Northfield, Town of Thetford, Village of Waterbury, Town of Norwich, Town of Colchester, Town of Essex, Town of Williston, Village of Bellows Falls, Town of Milton, Town of Shelburne, Town of Richmond, Town of Windsor, Town of Woodstock (Dispatchers), Town of Harwich, Town of Bristol,  Town of Castleton, Town of Ludlow, Town of Brandon, Town of Middlebury, Town of Stowe, and the Town of Fair Haven as the expansion in Vermont continues for NEPBA.

New England PBA Vermont State Director Sean R. McArdle stated; “These two Police Departments are the utmost professionals and their decision to join with a professional all law enforcement organization like New England PBA is obviously the right choice for both these departments. I look forward to working with these dedicated law enforcement professionals.” McArdle continued “I am proud of our organizing team and our continued record of accomplishment in the Green Mountain State. Yet, our continued growth in Vermont is predicated on our ability to deliver quality contracts and by continuing to provide the stellar legal services for all those we represent, including the Vergennes Police Benevolent Association and the Lyndon Police Association.”

New England PBA Executive Vice President Tom Daly called the election, “a great day for the hard working and dedicated members in Lyndon and Vergennes Police Departments, they both clearly want to be represented by a law enforcement union who respects and understands the needs of police officers.”
