Solidarity Rally with Logan Airport Workers Thu, June 15, 11:30am – 1:30pm East Boston Memorial Park, 143 Porter St, East Boston, (Blue Line T to ‘Airport’ Station)

calendarLow-wage workers are fighting for dignity, respect and a living wage at Logan Airport. Members are urged to take action on June 15th at Logan Airport to help them win.

At a time when the airline industry is raking in billions of dollars in record profits, subcontracted workers at the nation's airports are working for poverty wages and struggling to cover basic necessities like food, housing, and health care. This is un-acceptable. The airport should be a source of good jobs for the people who live and work in Boston.
