The Alliance For Philippines Security Guards Cooperative, was founded on January 8, 2008 by sixteen (16) legitimate, visionary and dedicated Security Guards, who came from various provinces and working with different Security Agencies in Metro Manila. Considering the nature of the job, more often than not, the compensation of a Security Guard is not enough and does not suffice to uplift his economic well-being. For this reason, this pioneer “cooperative security” was formed precisely to unite the two million Security Guards, together with their families, more or less. The primordial purpose is to provide every member a lifetime Income Security, Job Security and Social Security, under one universal slogan - JUSTICE, EQUITY & PROSPERITY FOR ALL!!!
1. The powers and responsibility of management and operations is vested by the inherent power of the General Assembly, as the final authority and highest policy making body of the cooperative - (Art. 38, R.A. 6938, Cooperative Code of the
2. The Security Guards and/or Clients shall be and are considered members of the cooperative, who are entitled to receive yearly dividends and patronage refund, in proportion to their shares of stock - (Art.74-77, R.A. 6938).
3. Exempted from paying local business permit fees, taxes and value added tax; (Art. 62, par. 1, R.A. 6938). This is a very vital and critical advantage that spells the big difference not enjoyed by private security agencies.
4. No pre-qualification requirements needed in bidding and automatically carries preferential rights when transacting business with government agencies and instrumentalities - (Art. 63, R.A. 6938).
5. Government institutions are mandated by law to support the promotion and development of cooperatives nationwide - (Sec. 1, Declaration of Policy, R.A. 6939, Cooperative Development Authority Law).
Invoking the provisions of the law, reminds us of the saying, “those who have less in life should enjoy more protection of our laws”. Certainly, this will be one of the tools, that shall enable the so-called less privilege two (2) million Security Guards including their families nationwide, to bridge the gap towards achieving economic self-sufficiency.
To uplift the living standards of the less privilege Security Guards in our society; to administer and implement comprehensive socio-economic programs, livelihood and welfare projects, that is responsive to the needs of the millions of Security guards including their families.
To ensure that cooperativism becomes the “viable and credible alternative” of the ordinary security guard to achieve meaningful change in his way of life; to effectively, efficiently and aggressively pursue economic emancipation and progress, so that this cooperative movement shall be able to unshackle the less privilege from the bondage of poverty, illiteracy, misery, despair, injustice, and gradually lead them to a better and improved quality of life; and, to provide security personnel and their families a better socio-economic alternative that will enable them to avoid the pitfalls of radicalism, destructive opportunism and/or anti-social behavior, which if left unchecked may lead to anti-people, anti-government, and possibly violent acts or terroristic activities.
Personified by compassionate, understanding and well-meaning Leaders of the Cooperative movement, it is envisioned by AFPSEGCO to maintain cohesiveness through SOLIDARITY, COOPERATION, COLLABORATION, UNITY, INTIMACY,RESPECT, and LOVE for one another in order to reap the benefits brought about by the EQUITABLE DISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH among the members.
