Honoring Aloha 243 on Workers Memorial Day

Honoring Aloha 243 on Workers Memorial Day

April 28, 2018

Today, pause to recognize Workers’ Memorial Day.

In 1970, the AFL-CIO declared April 28th as Workers’ Memorial Day, remembering those who have died on the job and redoubling our efforts to maintain and promote safety at work.

Op-Ed: United Airlines catering workers deserve a union

Op-Ed: United Airlines catering workers deserve a union

Originally published in the Houston Chronicle on April 9, 2018

I have worked as a flight attendant for United Airlines and before that for Continental for a total of 28 years. Over the years, unionized flight attendants have fought hard for decent salaries, safe working conditions and respect. Unfortunately, there are hundreds of United Airlines employees here in Houston who are still living in poverty without safe jobs or respect at work.
