Join MSP Airport Workers Demanding $15 & a UNION - Rally & Protest
What: 15 Now & SEIU Rally for $15/hour and a Union
Time: 12:00pm Friday December 5th
Where: Terminal 1, Upper Level Roadway, across from ticketing
Join 15 Now and SEIU for a national week of action of low-wage workers, beginning with Black Friday Walmart actions, then major fast food strikes on December 4th, and culminating locally with a major rally and action by workers at MSP Airport on December 5th.
Over 2,500 workers at the Minneapolis - St Paul airport make poverty wages, significantly less than $15/hour. Workers organizing with 15 Now have presented nearly 2,000 petition signatures from workers demanding $15/hour to the Metropolitan Airport Commissioners.
Delta workers, baggage handlers organizing with the International Association of Machinists (IAM) and Airserv workers organizing with SEIU are all fighting for their right to unionize. Poverty pay affects thousands of workers in numerous airport jobs, from DGS ramp and above wing, Swissport fuelers, retail workers inside the airport, G2 valets, rental car workers, to workers at many major airlines (Alaska, Great Lakes, Sun Country -Menzies).
On December 5th, join 15 Now & SEIU airport workers, community and labor activists, and all supporters of the demand for $15/hour and the right to a union at the Minneapolis- St. Paul airport. Workers deserve to live, not just survive!
