Port Authority Mulls Pay Hikes at Airports

Not long after pay hikes were ordered for low-wage workers at New York’s two major airports, the agency that operates those airports apparently wants to increase pay for workers at all its facilities.

The issue was discussed Wednesday at a board meeting of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

The Port Authority operates JFK, LaGuardia and Newark Liberty Airports. It also runs the Lincoln and Holland tunnels and George Washington Bridge, Port Authority bus terminal and PATH rail service, as well as the Ports of New York and New Jersey.

In late January, Port Authority executive director Pat Foye wrote to four airlines demanding that their contractors give raises to workers at JFK and LaGuardia and phase in a minimum wage of $10.10.
