Welcome to the Stand For Security blog!

Newly unionized Harvard security officers are in the process of bargaining their first contract. Harvard Stand for Security is a coalition dedicated to supporting officers in their contract negotiations. We believe that at the most prestigious and wealthy university in the world, it is shameful that workers are still lacking just wages, fair grieveance procedures, and a safe and respectful work environment.

Harvard security officers work tirelessly to protect and serve our campus. If you believe that hardworking, full-time employees should be able to support their families, if you believe that everyone deserves dignity and respect at work, if you believe that secure employment should not be the luxury of the wealthy, then please join us in this campaign.

We cannot lose this one, and we cannot win it without you.

We hope to use this blog to provide quick updates about the campaign and the hunger strike. Please, check back often to monitor our progress. Thanks!
