Orlando Airport Workers Celebrate Two Victories
November 1, 2011
Workers at Orlando International Airport are celebrating their growing union and a new contract settlement as they stand together for a better future in Central Florida.
On October 21, 2011, workers at AREAS USA won recognition of their Union, with 80% of the workers authorizing membership in UNITE HERE Local 362. These workers are uniting for a better future to achieve respect, dignity and fair work rules on the job.
Then, on October 24, 2011, members of Local 362 who work at SSP America in the Orlando International Airport voted to approve a new Contract that greatly improves their health care plan, and also providing guaranteed annual wage increases.
