Mayor Releases Statement on Airport Subcontracted Employees

PHILADELPHIA Mayor Kenney released the following statement regarding Airport subcontracted employees.

“Governor Wolf and I have brought 32BJ SEIU and American Airlines together to come to an agreement that will give employees of airline vendors the opportunity to form a union of their choosing. Beginning today and into next week, 32BJ and American will be working together on such an agreement and to ensure the smooth operation of the Airport as thousands of delegates from around the country convene for the Democratic National Convention. I look forward to a resolution that works for all parties and ensures the highest level of service at PHL. I would also like to commend Congressman Brady and Councilman Henon for their invaluable efforts in making this progress possible.”
