Ethical Employment Partnership

Since 2008, G4S has had an ethical employment partnership with UNI, the global union federation.

G4S, Ethics

We encourage industry standards to be raised. By embedding our policies and practices into less developed regions, as well as by supporting new approaches such as the Ethical Employment Partnership. G4S was the first UK company to enter such a partnership, which drives improvements in employment standards across the global security industry, while helping to ensure that employee and union rights are respected throughout the company. Since 2008, we have had an ethical employment partnership with UNI, a global union federation. This agreement provides a framework for businesses and unions to engage locally for the purposes of union recognition and collective bargaining. We believe our Ethical Employment Partnership with UNI and the GMB remains a differentiator in the security industry.
