In January, over 2,000 United Airlines catering workers filed for a union election. In the months since, United has run an aggressive and insulting anti-union campaign against us.
United has received hundreds of millions of dollars in public subsidies from the city of Houston. Catering workers at IAH are stuck in poverty. After 30 years, I earn just over $11 per hour.
Managers threatened that if catering workers were to vote “yes” for the union, we could lose the flight benefits that allow us to see family who live thousands of miles away.
United Airlines catering workers are over 95% immigrants and people of color. United treats us like second-class workers compared to the rest of its employees.
OUR RIGHT TO VOTE
United Airlines is trying to deny catering workers their right to vote in a union election. We want a union and to be treated equal to other United employees.
