Security officers united in USWW are leading a national movement to turn
private security jobs into good jobs you can raise a family on.
Private security is one of the fastest growing occupations in the United
States. There are approximately 1.1 million private security officers
working in the United States — far outnumbering American police
officers. Some 600,000 private security officers are outsourced —
working for specialized security companies hired by clients to secure
Officers united in USWW are among the 35,000 private security officers
united in SEIU, the nation’s largest security officers union. We protect
property and people in facilities — including high-rise commercial
buildings, banks, power plants, airports, warehouses, stadiums and the
high-tech industry — all across America.
Through our national, community-based campaign — Stand for Security
— we have reached out to fellow security officers, building owners,
security providers, spiritual leaders, and elected officials across the
country in order to bring good jobs to our communities and more safety
and protection to those we serve.
