Sarina Santos: Better Conditions for Philly Airport Workers!

District:
http://www.seiu32bj.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/Sarina-Santos-wpcf_360x360.jpg

People think that airport workers have a good job. But in reality, airport work means low pay, poor treatment and fear of speaking out.  Service workers at Philadelphia Airport don’t get treated with the dignity and respect everyone deserves.

I know, because I worked there.

I was recently fired from my job as a bag handler by PrimeFlight Aviation Services after I publicly spoke out for better working conditions.

The Philadelphia City Council and the Mayor have the power to make sure big airlines employ responsible contractors that treat workers right and serve passengers well. And there’s a vote coming up this Thursday that can fix this.

There are two things you can do to put pressure on the Philly City Council to pass this bill:

The more people who sign this petition, the more people who understand what is happening to workers like me at Philadelphia International Airport, the more likely the City Council is to vote yes this Thursday.

So please, sign the petition and then share it on Facebook. Together, we will win.
