GMB union has been organising and campaigning to raise the standards of conditions for our members employed within the Security Industry for over 70 years.  We negotiate with all of the major security companies, both nationally and on the global stage.

GMB started to form our long standing involvement in the industry many years ago when we reached agreements with Securicor and covering various strands of their business such as Cash Services, General Guarding, and their Parcel Division.

From those early days, we are now recognised by the majority of the biggest security companies around the world and cover collective bargaining for our members across G4S, Loomis, Wilson James, Securitas, as well as many other Security companies.

During the Olympic Games in 2012, GMB was the only trade union organising and representing security officers with thousands joining GMB and who remain involved to this day.

We have successfully improved Health and Safety for security workers. One example of how we’ve done this is through the launch of our very effective Safeguarding campaign which is aimed at encouraging employees to adopt a zero tolerance policy on physical and verbal attacks on security officers.

We also have our own Legal firm called UnionLine.  If you wish to use them, you can contact them on 0300 333 0303 or visit their website via www.unionline.co.ukThis is your law firm and they are there to provide you with legal support in the workplace and with difficulties you may experience at home.
