Everybody should have a union…. It gives us a voice. It gives you the power to change things that need to be changed.

Boston Airport Workers Fight for Respect

Passenger service workers at Boston’s Logan Airport are fighting for improved standards and quality jobs. Right now, there are 1,500 subcontracted airport workers—including aircraft cleaners, baggage handlers, skycaps, wheelchair assistants and ticket agents—who have no voice on the job and are paid poverty wages despite their hard work and the essential services they provide airline passengers.

Working together with a community coalition that includes NUBE, Chelsea Collaborative, North Shore Labor Council, and City Life/Vida Urbana, airport workers and SEIU 32BJ District 615 are calling for improved standards including better wages, health insurance, the right to a voice at work without fear and harassment, job stability, and full-time work.
