LaGuardia, Newark And JFK Workers Call Off Strike

The workers' strike began at 9 p.m. Tuesday

NY air passengers are facing disruption after hundreds of workers at the city's three main airports walked off the job in the midst of a trade dispute.

United, American and JetBlue flights will be impacted if the strike resumes.

The workers voted to walk out Tuesday night over what they described as "unfair labor practices" but called off the strike early Wednesday morning.

The 32BJ Service Employees International Union says they were intimidating workers on their negotiations team.

The workers, who clean airplane cabins, handle baggage and assist with passengers in wheelchairs, want the companies to address concerns about pay, working conditions and safety.

The workers with SEIU Local 105 provide several services for many of DIA's major airlines. Philadelphia International Airport also is targeted. The workers, employed through the airline's contractors PrimeFlight Airline Service and Prospect Aviation Services, were planning to hit the picket lines at 11:30 a.m., remaining until 6:30 p.m.

The job actions will continue over the next three days.

It's not known what, if any, disruption may come at the airport due to those who chose to strike.
