The International Brotherhood of Teamsters won an election to be the official collective-bargaining representatives of corrections officers in Florida, ousting the Police Benevolent Association, both sides said Thursday, reports the News Service of Florida. According to the Teamsters, the new union won 4,097 of the 7,391 votes cast; the PBA had 3,015, and the rest of the votes were split between those who voted for no union or a third organization. “Now, the hard work begins,” said Michael Filler, director of the Teamsters’ public service division. The PBA said it plans to continue its lawsuit opposing prison privatization. “Of course we are disappointed in the result but nevertheless plan to continue to fight for the rights of corrections professionals,” PBA Corrections President James Baiardi said in a statement issued following the vote.
