Community has long represented people working across the privatised justice and custodial sector. We understand the unique working environment, and the challenges and opportunities that it presents to the workforce.
Community supports more workers in the privatised justice and custodial sector than any other union.
Thousands of our members work in:
- Private prisons
- Secure immigration centres
- Young offender institutions
- Secure training centres
- Courts & prisoner escorting
- Electronic monitoring services
- Overseas escort services
Our members work for a range of companies and organisations in the sector including Serco, Sodexo, G4S, Mitie, Capita EMS and Catch 22.
Our members’ work is vital to the UK justice system, and to public safety with our members an unsung emergency service.
Workers in the justice and custodial sector face environments of considerable risk, frequently resulting in situations that represent a risk to their health and safety. Promoting and protecting the health, safety and wellbeing of our members is of the utmost importance. That’s why we’re running a campaign to ensure that everyone working in the sector can go to work from threats or fear of assault. Find out more about the campaign here.
We understand the pressures workers can face on the frontline and count former prison officers amongst our full-time staff. We have decades of experience in supporting and representing justice services workers as well as negotiating with the leading contract companies in the sector.
We’re fighting for a better working world, and we want you to join us.
