AUS Bargaining

AUS’ Acquisition of G4S & the SEIU - UFCW Agreement

Allied Universal announced its acquisition of G4S in April 2021. The acquisition included its operations within the Province of Ontario and merged its operations with that of the former G4S.

At the time of the merger, SEIU Local 2 represents security guards employed by Allied Universal Security in the province of Ontario and UFCW Local 333 represents security guards employed by G4S Secure Solutions.

To avoid a lengthy legal process to decide jurisdictions, which could impair both unions’ ability to improve standards, SEIU and UFCW came to an agreement whereby SEIU will represent members in Southwestern and Northern Ontario, and UFCW in the rest of the province.

Effective February 1, 2022, SEIU Local 2 took over as bargaining agent for Allied Universal in Southwestern Ontario (including London, Windsor, and Kitchener/Waterloo), and Northern Ontario (including Sault Ste. Marie, Sudbury, Thunder Bay, and Timmins).

Allied Universal employees who were members of UFCW remained on UFCW’s benefit provider until October 31, 2022. Effective November 1, 2022, those members were transferred to the SEIU Locals 1 & 2 Benefit Trust administered by Global Benefits.

SEIU waived the waiting period so members would not have an interruption in service. If you were eligible for benefits under the UFCW plan, you are eligible for the Global Benefits plan.

NOTE: If you had hours banked in the UFCW Trust, they do not terminate even if you changed unions or employers. Please contact your former UFCW representative for more information.
