32BJ Statement: JFK Renovation Plan

New York, NY— While we welcome Governor Cuomo’s announcement of a JFK Airport renovation project to ease travel and create temporary construction jobs at prevailing wage rates, this plan is however, also disappointing as it lacks the promised investments in airport service and security jobs needed to truly modernize JFK Airport. You cannot have a modern, world-class airport without modern jobs that pay family-sustaining wages and benefits to the workers we rely on to keep the airport running. We will continue our fight for better jobs that will improve New York airports for everyone and strengthen the communities that rely on them.

With 155,000 members in eleven states and Washington, D.C., including 70,000 in New York City and 8,000 airport workers in the New York-New Jersey region, 32BJ SEIU is the largest property service workers union in the country.
