Mother’s Day Celebration!

 

Last Friday we celebrated Mother’s Day outside of Kitchens #330 and #157. We shared a letter from a driver in #157, Synia, about her experience with United Airlines and the future she wants for her young boys.

For the celebration, we started off the day dancing!

and then we showed our support for working Moms who fight for Equality, Safety, and Respect.

 

 

 

To end our celebration of working Moms, we have a video message from Lakisha, who works in Food Production in #330.

Happy Mother’s Day to every working Mom at United Catering!
¡Sí Se Puede! Wi Nou Kapab! Yes We Can!

 

Political Solidarity in Trenton!

May Day in Newark!

 

On May 1, we celebrated the “National Day of Immigrants” outside of Kitchens #330 and #157, and we had a digital rally on Facebook, where many people around the country sent messages of support to our fight for Equality, Safety, and Respect.

First, a message from Sheeon who works in the Security Department.

Our final message of the day, from Sheeon in Newark!"United airlines catering workers are 95% immigrants and people of color. United treats us like second class workers compared to the rest of its employees." #UnitedDoesntCare

We had an awesome day where people all over the country supported us! We celebrated the diversity in our kitchens, which is a part of what makes us so powerful. If we stand together, we will win!
