Airport

Airport workers are not prepared for another emergency like January's shooting in Fort Lauderdale. That was the message from airport workers, government leaders, and representatives from the service workers' union SEIU 32BJ who gathered at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) Thursday to launch a campaign for more training.

There’s more unrest at Miami International Airport. More than 300 food workers have filed complaints alleging their employers have been underpaying them.

Workers with LSG Sky Chefs and Gate Gourmet said the underpayments date back to 2006. The employees of these companies, contractors of major airlines  - Sky Chef's main client is American Airlines - say their employers are violating the Living Wage Ordinance. 

More than 100 workers at Miami International Airport are striking for 24 hours.

Subcontractors tasked with handling baggage, curbside check-in and pushing wheelchairs for various airlines are walking off the job in protest of what they say are violations of the Miami-Dade County living-wage ordinance.

Airport workers around the country are demanding more rights, including higher pay and freedom to unionize. 

The Broward County Sheriff's Office (BSO) is facing criticism over its handling of the fatal mass shooting at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport last January.
