Tell Wilson to stop ripping off their security guards

My name's Norm Davis, and I've been a security guard for 15 years. My employer, Wilson Security, has been manipulating overtime hours to cut our already low wages even lower. Can you sign and tell Wilson to stop ripping off their guards?

Why is this important?

UPDATE: Norm is now taking on Wilson Security in the Federal Court in Canberra. Show Norm you've got his back on March 8 at 10:00am - more details: http://bit.ly/2Ce2LcK

"Together with my union, United Voice, I've tried, over and over again, to get Wilson security to stop stealing from their employees. It is systemic wage theft, from people who really can't afford to lose any money. I'm losing more than three thousand dollars a year - and there are hundreds of people just like me.

"Most security guards are on really low wages. The whole industry tends to work on rotating rosters - four days on, four days off. A lot of security companies try to save money by scheduling overtime shifts on Sundays. But Wilson Security has gone a step further - they're picking and choosing when 'overtime' shifts occur - so they can avoid paying overtime. 500 security guards are being ripped off in the ACT alone.


Reasons for signing

  • A fair society cannot exist without economic justice.
  • I'm in the same boat
  • I have known security guards in my previous work as a federal public servant. I have learnt just how low paid they are, and was quite shocked at the time, unlike the people whom they were guarding the safety of. Next time you breeze through your employer's building foyer, stop and have a yarn with a security guard (if the coast is clear ...).
