The Fight for $15 Continues in Richmond Virginia as the Security Officers working for Swanson Securi
Richmond Virginia - March 7, 2014 - On the heels of victory back on 1/24/2017 by the security officers working for Allied Universal on the City of Richmond contract, fifty (50) Swanson Security followed suit and stood strong by voting unanimously in favor of LEOSU-DC representation with the employer receiving 0 votes.
Swanson Security is a minority contractor of Allied Universal working on the City of Richmond contract states LEOSU-DC Organizing Director Steve Maritas.
While the Swanson security officers working along side the Allied Universal officers, essentially perform the same duties and functions as the Allied Universal officers, these Swanson Security officers are making much less in regards to wages and benefits. With the combined strength of almost 100 security officers working on the same contract, the union will attempt to negotiate one master agreement for both companies. This is the game plan noted Maritas.
We welcome these Swanson Security officers as well as the Allied Universal officers into the Law Enforcement Officers Security Unions (LEOSU-DC family. We promise to not let you down!
