Page 8 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – Friday, May 31, 2019 AG's Office issues citations against Logan Airport contractor for wage violations B OSTON — The Attorney General’s Office recently issued citations totaling $74,250 in penalties against a company that provides services for airlines at Logan Airport for violating the state’s wage and hour and earned sick time laws. Flight Services & Systems Inc. (FSS), an Ohio-based company that provides non-TSA related security, wheelchair assistance, and other services for airlines, and its president Phil Armstrong, received three citations for failing to keep true and accurate records, make timely payment of wages, and for violations of the Earned Sick Time Law. The AG’s Office began its investigation after receiving several complaints from FSS employees through the Service Employees Industrial Union, Local 32BJ alleging nonpayment of wages and earned sick time violations. “In Massachusetts, getting paid what you’re owed is a right, not a privilege,” said AG Healey. “I commend these workers for coming forward and hope this action from my office sends a message to employers that we are committed to enforcing wage and hour laws when companies don’t play by the rules.” “For far too long, FSS has been getting away with stealing wages from the working people who keep our airport clean and safe,” said Roxana Rivera, Vice President of 32BJ SEIU. “Wage theft not only hurts AG'S OFFICE | SEE PAGE 13 J& • Reliable Mowing Service • Spring & Fall Cleanups • Mulch & Edging • Sod or Seed Lawns • Shrub Planting & Trimming • Water & Sewer Repairs Joe Pierotti, Jr. Everett Aluminum 10 Everett Ave., Everett 617-389-3839 Owned & operated by the Conti family since 1958 • 57 Years! “Same name, phone number & address for family since 1958 • 61 over half a century.

According to The Eagle-Tribune, he opened his final season at North Andover with a 7-0 record and 0.38 ERA, striking out 66 batters in 37 innings. Last spring, Keane earned All-Scholastic honors from The Boston Globe and Boston Herald and was also named MVP of the Merrimack Valley Conference. Keane becomes the second Nav in as many years to be named Gatorade Player of the Year; the Futures League’s reigning Top Pro Prospect Sal Frelick earned the honor in football before graduating from Lexington High School last June. He was an All-Atlantic Coast Conference performer on the diamond at Boston College this spring. The Navs kicked off their 2019 season on Thursday, May 30 at Brockton.
