After a three-day strike that disrupted restaurant services and involved 1,000 restaurant workers at the San Francisco International Airport, union representatives say workers approved a new contract that provides free family health care and increases pay by $5 an hour, SFGATE reports. Unite Here! Local 2 says it had been three years since the workers had received raises — with one worker telling the news site they hadn’t received a single raise in 20 years at the airport.
The strike affected 65 percent of the eating establishments inside the airport and disrupted service; however, the strike was called off last Wednesday when a tentative agreement was reached, with final approval given Sunday, October 2. The raise is expected to increase pay from $17.05 to $22.05 an hour as well as improve health insurance, and increase retirement income, according to SFGATE.
