MSP workers win union recognition

Service Employees International Union has recognized hundreds of workers employed by Delta subcontractor AirServ at Minnesota´s St. Paul Airport (MSP), the union said.

The employees, including baggage handlers, cabin cleaners, cart drivers, wheelchair agents, unaccompanied minor escorts and lavatory and water service fillers were recognized by the union´s Local 26.

The news came after a neutral third party verified a majority of workers signed cards supporting the union.

The union said the vast majority of the workers are East African and their campaign is an important part of the work to eliminate Minnesota´s racial economic inequalities.
