MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Some union plow drivers and upkeep employees at a number of Twin Cities airports have voted to strike amid an “deadlock” in negotiations with the Metropolitan Airports Fee.
Officers with Teamsters Native 320 say MAC offers greater than double the quantity of severance pay to employees from different union teams, and it hasn’t elevated compensation that’s on par with agreements made with these teams.
The MAC employees that will strike are employed on the Minneapolis-St. Paul Worldwide Airport, Airlake Airport, Anoka County/Blaine Airport, Crystal Airport, Flying Cloud Airport, Holman Area and Lake Elmo Airport.
A MAC spokesperson gave this written assertion concerning the matter to WCCO Sunday night: “The MAC continues to barter in good religion with Teamsters Native 320, and we’re assured we will come to an settlement. We sit up for persevering with our discussions when mediation begins on December twenty eighth.”
State legislation dictates that the earliest the employees might strike is Jan. 20, 2022. Teamsters officers say about 85 employees “can be concerned in a doable work stoppage.”
