Airport workers at JFK and LaGuardia are
planning a midnight strike. Airport workers are set to
strike Wednesday night at New York City's LaGuardia and John F. Kennedy
International airports in protest of what they view as below-fair wages in an
era of climbing airline profits. Bloomberg reported that the striking
workers, who include security officers, baggage handlers and wheelchair
attendants, will begin at 10 p. m. ET and return to work at 1 a. m Thursday
morning. "While the airlines have been making record profits and the
Port Authority has approved billions of dollars to modernize LaGuardia
airport, the airport workers who make these profits possible are struggling to
survive," reads a news release from the Service Employees International
Union. The strike is expected to be particularly rough on travelers flying
Delta Airlines, which makes heavy use of both airports. A Delta spokeswoman
told Bloomberg the airline "will be taking measures to ensure that our more
than 35,000 customers booked through LaGuardia on Thursday are not affected.
" Other airlines likely to be affected by the strike include United
Airlines and British Airways, among others. This article originally
