Raising the standard for good working conditions is like a chain reaction. More people will see their work life can be better.

NY Security

Welcome to 32BJ SEIU NY Security

We protect key sites in New York, yet until recently our jobs have been poorly paid and we’ve had few benefits and rights. We’re changing that. 10,000 of us have stood up to employers and won union representation with 32BJ. Now, we’re raising standards, continuing to organize, and winning respect on the job.


We are powerful because people like you have stepped up to join the fight. We need your help leading contract campaigns, organizing non-union workers, and taking political action. If you’re interested in joining the fight and getting important union updates, fill out the contact information below:
