Victorian security guards work hard to keep you and your community safe. They are campaigning to win a professional security industry.
Security guards paid 'poverty wages': union
Security guards looking after the headquarters of Victoria Police and 13 defence and high tech sites across the state are walking off the job after pay talks broke down.
Up to 50 MSS guards will refuse to grant access to police headquarters, Geelong Hospital, Boeing and Holden.
The guards are demanding a pay rise of 12 per cent over three years.
Jess Walsh, the Victorian secretary of the United Voice union, says without adequate security some of the sites could be forced to shut down.
"MSS has refused to engage in any discussions in the last couple of months and that's why things have broken down," she said.
She says hundreds of employees could be affected.
