Creating Good Jobs
Over 60,000 security officers have united with SEIU in locations like Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Columbus, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, Minneapolis-St. Paul, New York, New Jersey, Pittsburgh, Portland, the San Francisco Bay Area, Silicon Valley, Sacramento, Seattle, and Washington, D.C.
Working together with responsible security companies, building owners, elected officials, faith leaders and community supporters, we have won significant industry improvements– including increases in officer wages and benefits — and done so without putting security companies at a competitive disadvantage.
Our market-wide approach recognizes the competitive nature of the industry and allows market-leading companies to raise standards while ending the “race to the bottom” with lower wages and benefits. Instead companies compete on the basis of innovation, reliability, safety, and overall quality of service.
By implementing market-wide standards for security, we are helping to create good jobs for our communities and working to lower turnover, improve training, and ensure the public is safe.
