• Airport officers to meet with CMPD over discrimination claims


    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Police officers who work at Charlotte Douglas International Airport could learn details about their future with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department Wednesday.

    A group of officers filed a lawsuit in September claiming they're being discriminated against, and Eyewitness News has learned those officers could completely lose their status.

    Some tough words are expected at the Wednesday night meeting between CMPD and the officers, who say they're not being treated fairly when it comes to benefits and pay.

    Eyewitness News has followed this story since it began unfolding in 2012. That's when CMPD took over security duties at the airport.

    The security officers who already worked at the airport became part of that new team, but those original officers said they've been paid less than their peers and were told they'd have to go through training again to receive equal pay.

    The two parties will meet Wednesday night to talk about the lawsuit and how to move forward.
