MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- St. Paul Airport (MSP) - After years of organizing, including many landmark victories along the way, hundreds of workers employed by Delta subcontractor AirServ have won recognition of their union with Service Employees International Union, Local 26. They include baggage handlers, cabin cleaners, cart drivers, wheelchair agents, unaccompanied minor escorts and lavatory and water service fillers.
"I couldn't be happier than I am today," said cart driver Abdi Ali, a father of three who has worked at MSP for eight years. "This victory did not come easy, but it was worth the effort. We are always there for each other, and now we will finally have a real voice at the airport." The news came after a neutral third party verified a majority of workers signed cards supporting the union.
