Delays possible at DIA due to worker's strike

Workers at Denver International Airport are planning to join those at other airports across the country in protesting against three private contracting companies Wednesday. Rob Hill, Vice President of 32BJ SEIU, said early Wednesday morning that the union and American Airlines have agreed to last minute discussions.

Several hundred workers, including baggage handlers, cleaners and customer service agents at three New York-area airports and Philadelphia International Airport have suspended a strike while contract talks continue.

On Tuesday, the union filed unfair labor practice charges against Prospect Airport Services and PrimeFlight Aviation Services. For now, that means airport workers will be on duty.

Headquartered in Manhattan, Local 32 BJ of SEIU, the Service Employees International Union, has 163,000 members, primarily in property service jobs, also known as janitors, along the East Coast.

The workers are prepared to return to the picket lines if negotiations break down, NBCNewYork.com said.

As a result the workers chose to strike, citing unfair labor practices. They are willing to do whatever it takes to win, whether that means walking off the job or giving American Airlines the chance to make things right.
