MIAMI — Now that Broward County elected officials back a higher wage for employees at a local airport, the Service Employees International Union says it’s time for those workers to join their labor union.

“The workers do need a union,” SEIU spokesman Michael Allen told the Sun-Sentinel. “If there’s any sort of improvement, it’s because of their organizing efforts.”

The Broward County Board of County Commissioners in November OK’d a resolution calling for a telephone hotline and email account where employees at Hollywood-Fort Lauderdale International Airport  can register complaints. The resolution also calls for employee break rooms in each of the airport’s four terminals.
