Do you work at SEA Airport? SeaTac Proposition 1 protects the rights of workers at most large airport, transportation, and hospitality businesses in SeaTac. Under Prop. 1 you have the right to:
- The second-highest minimum wage in the country: $16.34 in 2020
- Keep all the tips and service charges you earn
- Find out first about additional hours, before new part-time workers are hired
- Paid sick and safe time
- Also, under state law you have the right to paid family leave & meal and rest breaks for every shift you work.
Alongside Partner in Employment, Fair Work Center has launched a series of Know Your Rights trainings for airport workers. These workers are facing layoffs, reduced hours, and an unpredictable future as a result of the pandemic crisis — which is why it’s more important than ever to enforce Prop. 1 labor standards. We are offering these trainings in English and in Somali to reach African immigrant workers, while PIE is providing these trainings in French, Swahili and Spanish. We will make sure to provide trainings in other languages as needed.
