Swissport Workers Overwhelmingly Vote for IAM Representation

Seeking improved working conditions, a better quality of life for their families and fairness on the job, 35 Swissport Fuelers and Dispatchers at Baltimore/Washington International Airport (BWI) this week overwhelmingly voted for IAM representation.

Their desire to form a union and join the IAM was clear, as they collected in less than a week the requisite amount of cards to hold a representation election.

“I congratulate and welcome these Swissport Fuelers and Dispatchers into our IAM family,” said Transportation General Vice President Sito Pantoja. “I’d also like to thank our District 142 team for a great job in helping them form a union.”

The Fuelers and Dispatchers will now enter the next phase of their campaign and prepare for contract negotiations.
