So how big of a raise (average) are they demanding in dollar amount?
Actually, according to another account ( LAX Airport Workers Are NOT Striking on Thanksgiving Eve. Seriously. It's Gonna Be OK. ) this is about SEIU being upset because 465 workers voted themselves out of the union and as a result according to a former union member: ...he and his co-workers have left the union, he's making two dollars more an hour. He prefers the different insurance too--it's a PPO, as opposed to the HMO with family benefits he had while he was with the union.
