After a yearlong review, Apple has decided to hire the majority of its day-to-day security staff in the valley as full-time Apple workers, a spokeswoman told this newspaper. The Cupertino-based company had previously used a contractor to fill the positions. Like other Apple employees, the security guards will be entitled to full health insurance, retirement contributions and leave for new parents, among other benefits.
"We will be hiring a large number of full-time people to handle our day-to-day security needs," an Apple spokeswoman said. "We hope that virtually all of these positions will be filled by employees from our current security vendor and we're working closely with them on this process."
Apple will start hiring for its security team shortly, current officers are invited to apply for in-house positions. Contract security guards will be still be used to temporarily expand security for special events.
The announcement will be good news for United Service Works West, a regional arm of the Service Employees International Union that staged a rally on Apple's campus in December. The union said that Apple's contractor, Security Industry Specialists, had a poor record of treating workers and that many of its positions were part-time.
