Airport Workers Stand Up to the Port of Seattle

Airport concessions workers are turning up the heat for real job security. Local 8 members have begun meeting with Port of Seattle commissioners to discuss their future at the airport.

Airport workers have also taken action by circulating a petition to demand that the Port do the right thing and give us real job security. Without job retention being a part of all concessions lease agreements, a new company could do business in the airport and bring in a whole new group of workers. We are fighting to protect our jobs and the standards that we recently won in a great new contract.

If you are an airport worker and have not had a chance to sign the petition, please contact Cindy Richardson at 206-470-2982 and she will tell you who is circulating it in your unit.
