As 2017 comes to an end, we want to keep you updated on the security officers at DePaul University and their fight for a better future! Currently, Guardian Security Services Inc. officers who work at DePaul University’s Lincoln Park campus, ensure that thousands of students, faculty, and staff, can safely live and learn yet many of these same officers struggle for the basics like groceries and CTA passes.
DePaul students have continued to show their support and solidarity for the officers by gathering, spreading the word on campus, and reaching out to DePaul leadership to discuss choosing a responsible, union security contractor. On October 24th, they joined Guardian Security officers as they went on an unfair labor practice strike. The whole city of Chicago is watching their fight. Read more about their one-day ULP strike over at The Chicago Sun-Times, CBS News, and DNAinfo!
The fight isn’t over! Be on the lookout for updates in January 2018 as Guardian Officers at DePaul continue their fight for a voice on the job and a better future for their families.
