LAX Living Wage Victory


The new Los Angeles airport living wage ordinance will translate to wage increases for thousands of employees.

In addition to wage increases, our members at LAX also won the emergency response training they need to be part of a comprehensive, “whole community” approach to maintaining safety. LAX will now be the first airport in the country with a fully defined emergency response program that prepares the thousands of uniformed, contracted workers who serve the traveling public to also play an important role in protecting them in the event of an emergency.

This year the members at SFO will be fighting for a similar living wage ordinance in conjunction with their upcoming contract campaign.
