Boston Airport Dispatch Supervisors Vote to Join IAM for Better Working Conditions and Wages 

A group of dispatch supervisors working for the Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport) at Boston’s Logan International Airport have voted unanimously to join IAM District 15.

The workers made the decision to unionize in order to improve their working conditions and wages, as well as gain the ability to collectively negotiate for their future. They had been burdened with increased workloads, were not receiving the raises they deserved, and had little control over their schedules.

“We are thrilled to welcome these workers at Boston Logan International Airport into the IAM family,” said IAM District 15 Assistant Directing Business Representative Mike Vartabedian. “Their decision to join our union is a testament to the strength of the IAM and our ability to fight for and defend the rights of workers across North America.” 

The dispatch supervisors are responsible for coordinating and communicating with crews and other airport personnel to ensure safe and efficient airport operations.

“Dispatch supervisors at Boston Logan International Airport work tirelessly to ensure the safety and security of everyone who uses the airport,” said IAM District 15 Directing Business Representative Norm Shreve. “They deserve fair pay and working conditions that reflect the importance of their work. We look forward to working with them to negotiate a contract to achieve these goals.” 

The dispatch supervisors’ decision to join the IAM comes at a time when workers across the country are seeking to improve their working conditions and wages. 

“The IAM Eastern Territory has a long history of advocating for workers’ rights and fighting for better pay and benefits,” said IAM Eastern Territory General Vice President David Sullivan. “With the addition of the Boston Logan International Airport dispatch supervisors, the IAM is poised to continue this important work and help workers achieve the fair treatment they deserve.”
