Workers at the Portland airport held a ‘teach-in’ at the airport today to demonstrate the hazardous conditions they encounter at work.
The workers have recently filed complaints to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration against Prospect Airport Services – a contractor at PDX Airport responsible for providing cabin cleaning and other services.
At the teach-in, workers showed what it’s like to clean airplane toilets with substandard equipment.
They also provided visual examples of the makeshift solutions they are forced to implement in lieu of adequate supplies. 4:01 minutes (3.68 MB)
The Board of Commissioners for Multnomah County has voted to restrict the sale of e-cigarettes to minors, and prohibit the use of e-cigarettes in business places where traditional smoking is already banned.

The ordinance will go into effect in thirty days, on April 5th.
KBOO’s Ethan Martin spoke earlier today with Gregory Conley from the American Vaping Association.
