Cleaning Up at Logan

"Logan airplane cleaner files sexual harassment claim" by Katie Johnston Globe Staff  May 14, 2018

A former cleaner for a JetBlue subcontractor at Logan Airport filed a sexual harassment claim against her former supervisor — the fourth Boston worker to file such charges against ReadyJet Inc. in the past year, according to the union trying to organize airport employees.

Rosa Morban, 22, said her supervisor showed her his genitals several times during the roughly eight months she worked for ReadyJet last year. He also touched her inappropriately, she said, asked her out on dates, and called her fat and ugly.

“My supervisor exposed his private parts to me,” she said, speaking in Spanish through a translator, at a press conference across from the State House Monday.

Morban, who is from the Dominican Republic, said she was fired in January in retaliation for reporting her supervisor’s behavior and has been out of work since. She filed charges with the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination.

Undocumented immigrants fear that if they confront their harassers, they will be reported to immigration authorities. Under the Trump administration, advocates say, these workers have become even more fearful of speaking up.....

The union doesn't care, just as long as they get members.


At least there is always restaurant work.
