Demonstration Held Over Unfair Labour Practices
Baggage handlers have protested outside the British Airways terminal at John F. Kennedy Airport against what they deem unfair labour practices.
Amity Paye, spokeswoman for the Service Employees International Union, says the workers set up a picket line at 6:00am on the day. She claims the one day-protest began with about 30 workers employed by Aviation Safeguards.
Paye stated the baggage handlers are fighting for the right to higher wages and benefits.
CEO of the company, Craig Coy, says only a few workers were involved and that there were no baggage or flight disruptions.
