    IUPA: New Labor Relations Business Agent

    Hello to all,

    Just wanted to introduce myself to this site. My name is Mark Nelson and I am a new Labor Relations Business Agent with IUPA. I am recently retired from Toledo PD in Ohio after 30 years. I did road patrol, school officer and lastly the investigations bureau. During my detective years I handled property crimes and sexual crimes, including child pornography. I was also heavily involved in our union and did the positions of steward, trustee, financial secretary and treasurer. I was able to assist in negotiations, disciplinary issues and other matters that became before the executive board.

    TPD's union, Toledo Police Patrolmans Association(TPPA) is part of IUPA and the Legal Defense Fund(LDF). I can tell you over all the years I was with my dept and being involved in our union, I learned how valuable it was to have a national union behind you. One that was there to support you in any way you needed. We have lost 3 officers in the line of duty since 2007 and 2 of them in the past 7 months. IUPA stepped up immediately and sent monetary contributions to the families. But that is only one of the many things IUPA does to help.

    I am here to not only help IUPA's Locals, but to organize new Locals. My main focus will be on the west coast of Florida, but I am willing to travel to other areas as well if needed. If you and your fellow officers don't like the group who is currently representing you or just want to see what else is out there, I would be more than happy to talk with you. No pressure, I just want the opportunity to give you the facts on what IUPA can do for you and your group. I truly believe IUPA is the best of the best out there to be the Voice of Law Enforcement, only because I have lived it. Now I am lucky enough to be a part of it and help out my fellow officers nationwide and not just like I did in my old union.

    Feel free to contact me at markn@iupa.org or 941-487-2560 ext. 184. Thank you, stay safe and stay healthy.
