Capitol Police Officers Issue Vote Of No Confidence For Top Leadership

Article Link:

Members of the United States Capitol Police union reportedly issued a vote of no confidence in their upper levels of Capitol Police leadership late last week. According to CNN, the union originally scheduled the no-confidence vote to occur during the week that Officer Sicknick would lie in honor at the Capitol building. This resulted in officer complaints over the timing of the vote, and it was postponed. The vote started on Thursday afternoon and continued for 24 hours, “giving officers on three shifts a chance to vote at work.” Union and non-union members were eligible to take part. The vote “was open to those who were represented by the collective bargaining agreement.”
