Boston Airport Express has continuously raised questions about the situation of staff at Logan Airport. There is a high shortage of staff at the Boston Logan Airport which the authorities have been unable to fill so far.

In support of better working conditions, thousands of employees at 15 American airports organized the action. “Airport workers like me and working people all across the economy are fed up,” said one of the rally organizers.

The demonstrations backed the “Good Jobs for Good Airports Act,” which Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., introduced in June. The plan is for airport service workers to get a minimum hourly wage of $15, paid time off, holidays, good health care, and other benefits. It would be comparable to what is currently given to other federal contractors.

“Without us, nobody could visit their families over the holidays in safety. Although it makes me feel immensely proud to see passengers’ smiles, Montalvo said, “It comes at a huge cost when I can’t support my own family on poverty wages.”

Airport workers in Newark, O’Hare, and Logan went on strike to protest what they said were unfair working conditions at their direct employer, Swissport International AG.

The recent strike by airport car service workers is sure to have a big impact on car service transportation in and around airports. These workers provide a vital service, transporting passengers to and from the airport quickly and safely.
This could make it harder for passengers to get to and from the airport in a timely manner, leading to delays and inconvenience.
