Watchmen at Denver International Airport vote to strike against contractor

Members of the Service Employees International Union Local 105, who work as janitors at Denver International Airport, have voted to strike over pay and workload.

Union officials said on Wednesday that 99% of the nearly 250 SEIU members who voted during the three days of voting voted in favor of the strike. The union said in a statement that if the agreement is not reached before the end of Thursday, the strike could start from Friday.

About 350 janitors work for California-based Flagship Aviation Services, which won the contract at DIA in February. The company did not respond to requests for comment on Wednesday evening.

“We put ourselves at risk every day to keep this airport running through COVID,” said Densley Filbert, a janitor at the airport for 16 years. “We are sick of being mindless, overworked, underpaid, and underrepresented for our work.”
