Screeners file lawsuit

S.F. AIRPORT -- Grassroots labor organizers at San Francisco International Airport are suing security screener employers at Covenant Aviation Security.

In a complaint filed Monday in San Francisco, labor organizers from United Screeners Association Local 1 said they aim to protect their right to campaign at SFO and recoup the lost wages of three employees they claim were unlawfully terminated.

In filing the suit, Local 1 representatives are trying to "do our best for justice for the workers, to do the right thing for people here," said George M. Valdes, the union's director of operations for labor organizers.

In a prepared statement, Valdes cited ongoing problems such as a "corrupt" relationship between San Mateo's labor council and the airport.
