Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley has cited aviation services contractor Flight Services & Systems Inc. for failure to pay workers at Logan International Airport, the second such company at Logan to be fined by the attorney general in the past six months.
Coakley ordered Cleveland-based Flight Services to pay a $1,250 civil penalty and $4,129 to 22 wheelchair assistants and other passenger service agents.
The workers claimed they were paid less than minimum wage and weren’t given meal breaks from November 2009 to November 2012, according to the local chapter of the Service Employees International Union. Flight Services & Systems declined to comment.
Matthew Brelis, spokesman for the Massachusetts Port Authority, which runs Logan, said the agency will request a meeting with FSS to discuss what safeguards it has in place to insure it complies with state wage laws.
