“One job should be enough!” say airport workers

Airport workers and their supporters rallied at National Airport yesterday, saying “One job should be enough for airport workers! Public money should support good jobs!” “If I got hit by a car or a stray bullet, I’d tell the ambulance to take me to work,” said 32BJ SEIU member and contracted cabin cleaner Paul Blair, “Otherwise, I won’t have a job when I come back.” Said NoVA Labor president Ginny Diamond, “Airport workers deserve the fundamental human right to form a union!” And 32BJ’s Jaime Contreras noted that while MWAA in 2018 enacted a policy requiring contractors to provide a living wage for airport workers at Dulles and National, “MWAA also has the power to enact a policy requiring contractors to provide paid sick leave and health care benefits.” photo: airport workers Yardanos and Nigist
