Last year, more than 1,000 local Heinz Field security guards joined the Service Employees International 32BJ union. Sadly, their victory was short lived.
This week, fifteen security guards at Heinz Field were told that this would be their last week of work at the facility.
“We just found out Tuesday,” said security worker William Chernosky. “Not only does this put us out of work, it hurts our families, our children, and grandchildren. And, it hurts the local economy.”
According to security workers and supporters who turned out to a protest at Heinz Field earlier today, officials at Heinz Field decided to drop the union security contractor U.S. Security. Chernosky says the move will have a detrimental impact on safety at the stadium.
