Welcome to UGSOA International Union
UGSOA stands for the United Government Security Officers of America. UGSOA was founded in 1992 and is currently located in East Wareham, Massachusetts. We are one of the fastest growing Security Unions in the country and we represent Security Officers / Guards / Detention Officers / Police working at various facilities all across the nation.
UGSOA is a certified pure guard Union and is a 9(b)(3) union within the meaning of the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA). This section of the NLRA dictates that, “any individual employed as a guard to enforce against employees and other persons rules to protect property of the employer or to protect the safety of persons on the employer's premises; but no labor organization shall be certified as the representative of employees in a bargaining unit of guards if such organization admits to membership, or is affiliated directly or indirectly with an organization which admits to membership, employees other than guards”.
Our Organization represents Officers working on Department of Homeland Security contracts, Nuclear Power Plants, Court Security Officers, Detention Officers, and many other government and private security contracts.
We are committed to ensuring that our members receive adequate health care coverage, competitive wages, fair treatment, and respect in the work place. We take pride in our personal relationships with our members. All of our Directors began their careers with the UGSOA International Union as Local Leaders while working as Security Officers. We believe our in depth, firsthand knowledge of the industry provides our members with a unique level of confidence in our ability to properly represent them and our documented track record validates this assumption.
