SEIU trying to organize Halifax Securitas guards

The Service Employees International Union is attempting to organize Halifax-area security guards who work with Securitas, a Swedish-headquartered firm with operations around the world, including 160-180 local employees.

The union is going public with its drive today, Thursday, because “we’re trying to pressure Securitas to honour its agreement,” says SEIU organizer David Bush. In 2006, Securitas signed an international agreement with unions committing the company to neutrality during unionization drives, and said it would provide unions with necessary employee information and provide a neutral setting for union organizers to meet with prospective members.
