AlliedBarton Security Officers at Temple Asking for Meeting

For the third time in recent weeks,
Temple University President David Adamany has refused to meet with
AlliedBarton security officers who guard Temple's campus about their efforts
to improve security standards on campus.

AlliedBarton security officers from Temple and the University of
Pennsylvania went to Adamany's office Thursday afternoon to deliver a letter
requesting a meeting to discuss their efforts to improve security standards on
Temple's campus. The security officers were greeted by Adam Michaels,
Assistant to the President at Temple, who claimed President Adamany was in a
meeting. Michaels said President Adamany has no plans to meet with security
officers on the issue.

The security officers, most of whom are African American, are asking
Adamany to encourage its campus security contractor, AlliedBarton, to pay
living wages, provide affordable health care, and honor workers' basic civil
right to form a union so that they can win a better life, support their
families, and strengthen their communities. They point out that better
security standards can only be created once security jobs are improved,
training is increased, and job turnover among the officers is reduced.
this is part of the tour of universities from here
