Airlines put profit before safety.
High turnover and inadequate safety standards put airport workers in danger, while also undermining service and safety for passengers. In many airports, low wages and inadequate training can result from outsourcing service jobs to low-road contractors — putting profits ahead of our community’s safety.
By sticking together, speaking out and going on strike, we have made incredible progress at airports across the country. The San Francisco International Airport cut security screener turnover from 110 percent to less than 3 percent through a cutting-edge partnership between the airport, the screeners’ union and the employer.
Since our movement began, nearly 120,000 airport workers across the country have won wage increases or other improvements and 30,000 have won unions with SEIU .
We won’t stop until we win at least $15 an hour and union rights for all airport workers, so that we can all provide for our families and provide better service for the hundreds of millions of passengers we serve. Join us
