BOSTON — The terminals at Logan International Airport and the airplanes that fly out of the hub could be a lot dirtier if janitors'' concessions are not met, according to the Boston Herald.
Represented by the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Local 615, the roughly 100 janitors are seeking pay increases, paid sick time, holiday pay and health care coverage from the ARAMARK Corporation, the story stated.
The janitors work the overnight shift cleaning restrooms and removing trash from airplanes and airport terminals for Delta and United airlines, the story noted.
Roxanna Rivera, a negotiator with the SEIU, said: "People need to be very concerned about safety and security. We''re saying this is worth more than $9 an hour, with no benefits. Our position is that they are negotiating in bad faith."
The strike was originally planned to begin last night, but Massport negotiated a delay so the workers could obtain permission from Logan International Airport to picket on the property, the story added.
