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
