No terms announced on the contract agreements between 1,900 service workers and the service contractors that work for the airlines. Workers were asking for increased pay, improved medical coverage, and better training. A spokesman for Airport Workers United, which is part of Service Employees International Union Local 1877, told the LAT that not much was gained in health care (workers now get an average of $10 an hour and almost none have health care). About 600 workers, mostly janitors and cabin cleaners, have yet to reach agreements with the remaining service contractors.
