Roughly 2,000 United Airlines food service workers are concerned that they might be laid off before the end of the year. These concerns continue despite the airline receiving billions in Covid relief funds and agreeing to pay millions in bonuses to its top executives. An estimated 900 United catering workers and their supporters staged protests against the airline today. The demonstrations outside airports in Denver, Houston, Honolulu and Newark, New Jersey, came nearly three months after United's vice president of customer strategy and innovation, Mandeep Grewal, sent a letter to the catering staff informing them that the airline was exploring out sourcing their current in-house kitchen operations.
