THIS THURSDAY! Rally and Speak-Out
December 6, 4:00-5:30pm
Port of Oakland—540 Water Street
We will come together at the Port Commissioners meeting to, once again, tell the stories of the non-union food service workers at the Oakland Airport.
Union and non-union workers are standing together. Come join us in the fight for justice.
Update on the Campaign
Non-union food service workers at the Oakland Airport continue to seek a fair process to decide if they want to form a union. They have called for a boycott of their shops, and have participated in several rallies over the past few months to bring attention to injustices and retaliatory firings. Workers have filed grievances with all levels of government, and met directly with Port Commissioners to stress the urgency of the situation.
At the same time, UNITE HERE Local 2850 members working in food and retail service at the Oakland Airport have been in ongoing contract negotiations with HMS Host. Host has proposed a number of takeaways already. On November 12, workers voted 134-0 to authorize a strike if necessary to win a fair contract.
Janitors and clerical workers represented by SEIU Local 1021 were in their own contract fight for a long time at the Port of Oakland. Our members have stood with them in solidarity, and this past week the workers represented by SEIU won a fair contract.
Union and non-union workers are standing together to fight for a better future at the Oakland Airport. These fights are about ensuring that jobs at the Airport are secure, good quality jobs, and that Airport workers are treated with respect and dignity.
Si se puede!
