In February this year security technicians employed by ADT Securities (a Tyco company) contacted the ETU to seek advice regarding the advantages of a union endorsed EBA verses a non union EBA.
After meeting with all the techs to discuss the differences between the two options 100% of the security techs at ADT Securities joined the ETU.
Some months ago the union commenced negotiations on behalf of the workforce with management in what would be the first union agreement ever at ADT Securities.
Although the negotiations were been lengthy, members stuck firm and the outcome has been exceptional.
The new ETU union agreement contains exceptional wage increases and increases to the on call allowance along while also delivering better defined experience levels for the security industry.
In previous years under the non-union agreement workers at ADT Securities had received nothing more than CPI increases to wages.
A big congratulations to all ETU members at ADT Securities who now understand the power of unity.
