Global Unions


6 June 2008: In 2006, unions from around the world met to create the Alliance for Justice at G4S.

G4S is the largest employer in the security industry and the second largest employer in the world with around 560,000 workers in 115 countries. The Alliance aims to win a global agreement to ensure workers’ rights to join the union of their choice and receive decent treatment, including a living wage and social protection.

Over the past 18 months, the G4Alliance has researched working conditions for guards around the world, brought complaints to the ILO and other international organisations, engaged in discussions with G4S investors and clients on the corporate social responsibility implications and supported national trade unions in organising workers to improve conditions.
