Allied-Barton Security Sucks

PLEASE HELP US ORGANIZE!!!

As a employee of Allied Barton, I can say that I am disappointed in what they are doing to their employees by not providing all employees with fair wages and benefits. They have recently been awarded 2 major contracts for Miami Dade County GSA totalling about $10 million per year. I also know for a fact that they have been selected for a sole source contract with the Water and Sewer Department to run security for all their facilities at a cost of $8 million. Why do they offer security to government security officers but not the nongovernment security officers. I am making $9.25 an hour working as a concierge for a hi-rise commercial building in downtown. I know that they are looking for employees to earn almost $11.50 per hour with benefits at these new accounts.

I would like to help all the Allied Barton employees rally together to deman equal pay and benefits. If you can offer your support please send an email to the following people who have just awarded the major contracts to Allied Barton and demand that they force Allied Barton to the table to negotiate with current employees:

General Services Administration
Wendi Norris - Director
111 NW 1st Street, 24th Floor, Miami, FL 33128

I have to agree that Allied Barton SUCKS!

My partner and I both worked for AB at the same site, and we were both fired for no reason, and consider that to be discrimination.

We both won our hearings with Oregon Unemployment, so we each have the satisfaction of a 6 month paid vacation from that lousy company.

When the vacation pay ends, we intend to sue them.
