SEATAC, Wash. (AP) — Baggage handlers, cabin cleaners and ramp workers employed by Alaska Airlines contractor Menzies Aviation have walked off the job at Sea-Tac International Airport.
The workers are picketing on Friday to protest what they say is unfair labor practices_including intimidation, threats, and harassment— by their employer.
The Menzies Aviation workers also say they're also demanding a safe workplace.
The workers plan to picket all day Friday and hold a 10 a.m. rally where they'll be joined by community leaders.
The workers are asking the public to send a message to Alaska Airlines to tell their contractor to respect the law.
Messages left with Menzies Aviation seeking comment were not immediately returned.
