Manitoba Security Guards facing a surprise wage-freeze by Pallister Government

September 29, 2017


Manitoba security guards won’t be getting the pay increase they were expecting on October 1. Instead, the Pallister Government is in the middle of pausing legislation that governs Manitoba’s security guards minimum wages — and may be planning to revoke it entirely.

UFCW is holding a rally at the Legislative Building on October 24, 2017 from 11:30 am - 1:00 pm and will be encouraging all security guards union and non-union to attend.

June 3, 2011
On June 2, UFCW Local 832 members working for Avion Security turned down the company’s last offer and voted 100 per cent in favour of strike action.

The union will now apply for a conciliation officer and meetings will be set in the near future. Members will be notified on the progress of those meetings after they have occurred.

Avion security negotiations stall, strike vote called.

May 18, 2011
Your union negotiating committee met with your employer on May 11, 2011.  This was the fourth day of negotiations since February. The parties had been making good progress on the non-monetary discussions; however talks have now broken down over issue of wages and benefits. The very minimal wage increase that Avion has offered over a four-year contract is not acceptable.

Negotiations continue for Avion Security

March 15, 2011
Negotiations for a new collective agreement with Avion continued on March 9 and 10, 2011. Good progress was made, and to date most of the non-monetary proposals have been resolved. The union has tabled a complete monetary proposal including wage and benefit increases.

Notice to Security Guards

March 9, 2007
The provincial government now requires security officers to produce a criminal records check and a child abuse registry check to qualify for a licence. Officers requiring a criminal record check will advise by their employer but all guards must provide a child abuse check as it is new this year. Proof that you have applied for these checks will be necessary prior to obtaining your new security licence at the end of March.
