Airports are sometimes described as “cities within cities”—clusters of tens of thousands of workers, spread across many public and private employers, working ‘round-the-clock shifts. Add the intensely tight scheduling of airline flights and you can see the opportunities for well-organized workers to use their leverage to build power. Hear from baggage handlers, flight attendants, and gate agents about their organizing drives and a fight for a first contract, and from workers fighting privatization in the air traffic control industry.
