Denver Frontier Airlines’ ramp workers voting on unionization – The Denver Post-6-19-14

Posted: June 20, 2014 in Uncategorized

Frontier Airlines’ ramp workers are attempting to unionize for the first time after years of uncertainty, a pillaging of benefits and a dramatic downsizing of their ranks.The ramp workers, fueled by the momentum of new ownership under Indigo Partners LLC and the fear that the airline’s new frugal business model will threaten their jobs, are beginning to organize and speak out.”I think without representation we will continue to lose benefits,” said Lori Snyder, a Frontier ramp worker for nearly seven years.The National Mediation Board has approved Transport Workers Union of America’s request for an election that would put Frontier’s Denver ramp workers under its umbrella.Ballots were mailed Wednesday to 400 employees who perform such work as baggage handling and guiding aircraft at the gates. Votes will be tabulated July 10.
