Dear JetBlue,

We are your subcontracted PrimeFlight, Ultimate and Roma workers who provide services— cabin cleaning, terminal cleaning, wheelchair attending and more— to JetBlue at airports in New York.

We do the security checks of your planes, but have been told on and off to not complete the searches. We enable your record breaking profits, but are given few, if any, benefits to support our families. We keep your terminals clean, but are often not given adequate supplies to safely do our jobs. Then when we try to speak up about these issues your contractors Roma and Ultimate have illegally threatened us and tried to intimidate us. (Click here for more details on these issues.)

This treatment doesn’t match JetBlue’s values of humanity, safety, integrity and caring. As New Yorkers, we expected more from New York’s hometown airline.

New Yorkers need an airline that will hire responsible contractors and tell them to treat airport workers right! Will that airline be JetBlue?
