Downtown Detroit Security Officers Threaten Strike If They're Not Allowed To Unionize
(DETROIT, MICHIGAN) - Security Officers in the city of Detroit are the latest group to band together and demand a $15-an-hour wage. More than 100 of them are threatening to boycott work if that demand is not met - and, they’re also seeking to organize a Union.
"Those Officers are threatening to walk off the job any day now if their company Secure America doesn't allow a fair process to Unionize," reported WWJ's Vickie Thomas.
The Officers - who secure some of the most prominent buildings in downtown Detroit, have the support of various clergy, city and county officials.
Freep.com posted an opinion column from Detroit City Councilwoman Janeé Ayers supporting the Workers in their quest: The same people who secure these downtown buildings are the ones who lived here and stayed here during the city’s greatest struggles. Now, in the midst of Downtown Detroit’s renaissance, communities are still being left behind. We are living in two Detroits, but we need one Detroit, where no Working Person should struggle to put food on the table for their families. One Detroit where all Working Families have the opportunity to participate in Detroit’s resurgence and thrive with at least a $15 hourly wage.
