Airlines put profit before safety.
We worry that high turnover and inadequate safety standards put us in danger, while also undermining service and safety for passengers. In many airports, our effectiveness is compromised by the low wages and inadequate training that can result from outsourcing service jobs to low-road contractors.
By sticking together, speaking out for change 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 25,000 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
