Labour Disputes and Executive Protection
Respect drives all of our interventions
Negotiating new collective agreements can lead to delicate situations for many companies. This is why our employees are trained to intervene respectfully with all involved parties so as not to aggravate the situation. However, as it is impossible to predict how a labour dispute will go, Gardium Security also helps its partners to anticipate worst case scenarios and prepare appropriate intervention plans.
Our private security service possesses solid experience in supporting companies as they safeguard their progress in labour relations discussions as well as in planning to help them protect their personnel and organizational assets. Our experienced personnel can cope with the most difficult interventions that may be required in such conflicts: providing executive protection, and dealing with picket lines, threats and intimidation. Our agents ensure secure access for management and non-unionized personnel, and thus allow operations to continue.
Our experts help to minimize the risk of confrontations by offering employees who are not involved in the labour dispute information sessions about the appropriate attitude to adopt and how to act during disputes, thereby making them more aware of the role they can play.
In the event of a work stoppage, or a termination of operations so as not to compromise product quality, Gardium Security can cover all the eventualities, both operationally and in terms of tactical interventions. A custom plan is prepared and training for senior staff is offered, both entirely free of charge.

Diligence and vigilance to ensure your protection
Gardium Security offers specific protection services for people in executive positions.
The executive protection service is designed to escort leaders and those identified at risk in order to protect them from any threats or aggressive behaviour (e.g., physical or psychological threats than can stem from labour disputes, dismissal of difficult employees or plants closures). This type of private protection needs to be visible, but not cumbersome, to enable the people being protected to perform their duties with complete peace of mind.
Our security agents assigned to this service are mainly former police officers who have held comparable positions and possess executive protection expertise. This type of intervention is typically handled anonymously; Gardium Security regularly fulfills mandates as drivers and security guards for public figures, business executives and diplomats.
