Airline food workers at SFO consider strike


Workers will vote to strike on Tuesday amid labour negotiations with companies that pack food and drinks for major airlines like United, Delta, and American Airlines, reports San Francisco Weekly.

Workers are voting to strike due to allegedly inadequate healthcare coverage and low wages.

UNITE HERE Local 2 estimates that less than half of the airline workers at SFO had health insurance in 2018, just 10 percent had a child or family member covered.

Should the workers authorize a strike, the day they begin striking is uncertain since the National Mediation Board has to release aviation workers first.
