Labor unions are legally recognized as representatives of workers in many industries in the United States. Their activity today centers on collective bargaining over wages, benefits, and working conditions for their membership, and on representing their members in disputes with management over violations of contract provisions. Larger unions also typically engage in lobbying activities and electioneering at the state and federal level.
Most unions in the United States are aligned with one of two larger umbrella organizations: the AFL-CIO created in 1955, and the Change to Win Federation which split from the AFL-CIO in 2005. Both advocate policies and legislation on behalf of workers in the United States and Canada, and take an active role in politics. The AFL-CIO is especially concerned with global trade issues.
However under Section 9(b)3 of the National Labor Relations Act Security Guard Unions are prohibited from being directlyor in directly affiliated with a non guard union if it seeks to be certified by the National Labor Relations Board.
Here is the exact wording from the National Labor Relations Act: no labor organization shall be certified as the representative of employees in a bargaining unit of guards if such organization admits to membership, or is affiliated directly or indirectly with an organization which admits to membership, employees other than guards.
To date there are only a handful of security guard unions that are presently able to be certified by the National Labor Relations Board.
