Labor Conflict Takes Off at Denver Airport
A local labor union is targeting a janitorial contractor at Denver International Airport over allegations that the company is refusing to negotiate health care benefits for workers.According to a Friday e-mail message sent from Katherine Michienzi, a researcher for the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) local in Colorado, the union is launching a campaign against BG Service Solutions, a company that cleans trains at the Denver airport.
The union states that the business has refused to continue providing health insurance for workers, even after employees agreed to a compromise that would give up pensions, vacation and sick time in exchange for health insurance.
Attempts to contact BG Service Solutions over the weekend were unsuccessful.
The conflict motivated the union to publish the e-mail message, which encouraged supporters to call the business, voicing support for the company to bargain in “good faith.”
A search of National Labor Relations Board documents, the federal agency that investigates unfair labor practices throughout the country, found no prior cases regarding BG Service Solutions.
