Contracted service workers at National Airport and Dulles last week voted to walk off the job on strike against their employer, Huntleigh Corporation. The group, represented by SEIU 32BJ, plans to picket at both airports soon. Workers will attend the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority's meeting this Wednesday. They've been waiting for a vote on their demand that the Authority ensure that all contractors pay their workers $15 an hour; they currently earn as little as $6.15/hr plus unreliable tips. photo: airport workers rally at DCA 11/29; photo by Chris Garlock/Union City
