Victory For Apollo Officers in Cambridge, MA
Here in Massachusetts, we’re very happy to say that on June 6, 2010, 52 more security officers joined SEIU.
A majority of Apollo officers working at biotech sites in Cambridge, as well as at another client’s site in Allston, signed their union cards and won representation for themselves and their co-workers. Of these 52 new union members, most work at bio-tech facilities and are responsible for providing a high level of security for buildings that research and develop new pharmaceutical products every day.
These officers can now join their brothers and sisters that are working in Boston and Cambridge high-rise office towers. Together, they are making sure that they have representation on the job, a strong contract that protects their rights and benefits, and respect for the important work they do.
“I am proud to belong to SEIU Local 615, an organization dedicated to the protection and advancement of workers’ rights,” said Joe Salterio, an Apollo Security Officer.
Through its Stand for Security campaign, SEIU is continuing to organize the bio-tech facilities in Cambridge, and is working with Securitas officers to make sure they earn the same recognition and respect that others in the same profession have earned.
