Aviation Unions Support Boston Trades Workers

Aviation Unions Support Boston Trades Workers

March 3, 2022 - Unions representing more than 180,000 Pilots and Flight Attendants signed a letter this week in support of Laborers, Painters, Carpenters, and Build Trades Unions picketing at Marriott Copley Place. The hotel is engaged in anti-union activity and hiring Florida Construction Contractor, CRS, for their renovation project who is bringing in non-union workers from as far as Florida and Texas and paying them wages well below area standard.

Airline crews laying over in Boston are a significant part of Copley Place's business. The unions committed in the letter: "We are mobilizing at all levels of our unions and engaging with airline management to move our business to other hotels until you have resolved this dispute to the satisfaction of our allied unions. We will not be using your hotel while you undermine the working people of Boston. We do not cross picket lines.”
