Ontario's Union for fairness, equality and respect at work.

UFCW 1006A members working as security guards at Chatham-Kent Health Alliance have ratified a new union contract. 

Unionized security guards’ rights are under attack, as non-union security agencies increasingly win contract bids for worksites from unionized employers who then refuse to recognize existing union contracts.

“I feel like I am making a positive contribution to the community and to my fellow colleagues... it is fulfilling because you are making a difference in the worker’s life.”

We are proud to represent 8,000 workers in the security guard sector. We are leading the way in winning rights and improving working conditions in this sector.
