Allied Universal has announced that they will no longer be providing security services for the Amazon corporate worksites beginning mid-December. Securitas, a unionized company, has been awarded the contract and will be taking over the client’s security services.
Security officers working on the Amazon campus fought for and won a union, and negotiated a strong new contract earlier this year. Thanks to these efforts, officers can expect minimal disruption to their work lives as the account transitions to the new employer.
During this transition, SEIU6 is focused on ensuring officers’ union rights and benefits are respected per the Collective Bargaining Agreement.
If you are an officer at the Amazon account and are not interested in continuing on with the new company, Securitas, and would like to continue working for AUS, please reach out to HR as soon as possible. Be aware that your wages will be subject to change depending on the location of the new worksite.
Please reach out to our union with any questions, and keep in touch with your coworkers, shop stewards, and organizers to keep us all well-informed through the next few months.
If you have questions, please call the SEIU6 Member Resource Center at 206-448-7348, or send us a message.
