Welcome to the hundreds of airport workers in Los Angeles and Detroit who have recently joined UNITE HERE! On April 9th, 200 workers at LAX won union recognition from their employer, Areas USA. The victory came just days after the workers—some accompanied by their children—delegated Areas management at the airport, calling for respect and the right to organize.
And in Detroit, workers won recognition from Midfield Concessions, formerly one of the biggest remaining non-union food locations at the Detroit Metro Airport. Their victory comes on the heels of recent victories for HMS Host and LS Travel workers at the same airport. Congratulations!
