Airline Food Workers Rally at JFK Terminal 8
On February 14, during the busy President’s Day and Valentine’s Day travel rush, airline catering workers and their supporters will call on American Airlines to take urgent and necessary steps to ensure workers who cater inflight meals and beverages are able to escape poverty and access health care. Workers will be participating in marches, pickets, sit-downs and die-ins throughout the country.
This day of national protest is the latest in a series of demonstrations at U.S. airports calling attention to American Airlines, including our past nationwide protest on Thanksgiving weekend at John F. Kennedy Airport. Throughout 2019, airline catering workers held large-scale demonstrations in Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, and Dallas-Ft. Worth—where over 50 were arrested in a civil disobedience action near American Airlines’ headquarters and largest hub airport.
Buses will be available departing from our Newark and Manhattan Union office.
