"We voted to strike because we want to improve our lives. We will not let Huntleigh stand in the way," said Atmapu Hunde, an airport worker at Dulles. The SEIU 32BJ member rallied at Dulles yesterday with Huntleigh workers and supporters -- including other unions and local politicians -- to announce plans for a 2-day strike against the Irving, Texas-based company. Huntleigh workers have walked off the job on strike twice at both Reagan National and Dulles Airports. The predominantly immigrant workforce is entering their third year of a campaign for $15 an hour and a union.
