Denver Airport Janitors Win Raise After Pre-Thanksgiving Strike

Hundreds of janitors at Denver International Airport walked out on the job on Saturday, November 20, before reaching a deal that included what their union called a “historic” $4-an-hour raise.

The Service Employees International Union Local 105 said janitors were striking to demand “fair wages and workloads” from their employer.

The agreement with Flagship Facility Services still needs to be ratified by union members, the Denver Post said.

The proposed $4 hourly raise would come in three increments over a three-year contract and would raise top-level pay for janitors to $21, local media reported.
