Tell Securitas Not to Go Back On Its Word to Allow Workers to Organize

      Philadelphia, PA

Securitas is a global security firm that operates in 40 countries around the world. It employs 260,000 workers but often doesn't provide them with the training they need and pays them poverty level wages.

In its code of conduct and an agreement with a union, Securitas stated, "Securitas will respect the rights of all employees to form and join trade unions of their choice." But when a majority of workers in Indianapolis came forward announced their desire to form a union with the Service Employees International Union, Securitas called the police on them and refused to discuss the union.

Demand that Securitas executives honor their commitment to allow employees to freely form a union.

      The blue collar job market has gone to hell since Corporate America took over. We need unions to protect the workers. UNION YES! I'm retired, still pay my union dues. If it wasn't for them, the unions, I wouldn't be retired. Wake up, America!!

      When I was working at Olive View-UCLA Medical Center in Sylmar California Contract Manager Carol Mitchell, Area Human Resources Manager Sharon Gonzalez did not honor the Alternated Dispute, ADR, from the At-Will Employment Contract, moreover, former post commander Edgar Escarcega removed me from the post stating that it was the law enforcement agency.

      Also please investigate the current Area Human Resources Manager at the Mid-Wilshire in Los Angeles California, she terminated certain people under questionable methods.

      Just another instance of BigBiz profiting on the slave labor of the less fortunate -- they have EVERY right to unionize, and with a company like this, apparently every reason to do so!
