Security officers ratified a contract that covers security guards at dozens of tech companies. Security officers told us that they brought our petition to negotiations to show the support of tech workers. Your support was seen and heard.
Here's what they won: “With this new contract, officers will see immediate wage increases, with total increases up to $1.20 per hour by January. Officers won improved healthcare that will be 75%-85% paid by the employer by the end of the 4-year contract for the majority. In addition, many officers will receive new vacation days, holidays and an increase in paid sick days.” http://standforsecurity.org/2018/08/13/silicon-valley-security-officers-ratify-first-contract-in-one-of-the-largest-private-sector-organizing-efforts-in-california-history
This is a great first step. We'll continue to show solidarity with security officers fighting to make sure they have a real living wage as they continue to improve their working conditions.
