Wheelchair pushers, baggage handlers, cabin cleaners, and other passenger service providers are part of the core group of workers who achieved the historic $15/hour minimum wage at SeaTac. These workers—who had been earning around
$9/hour when the campaign began, not only significantly raised their own standard of living, but also sparked a national movement.
Now it’s time for passenger service workers to come
together again to fight for a better contract. Among the issues likely to be tackled are workplace improvements surrounding seniorty and bidding for shifts, and protections for workers who wish to take extended leave.
Stay tuned for updates and calls-to-action on this important campaign!
