A strike by security workers over training and equipment at New York’s JFK International Airport could threaten holiday travel.
If they go forward, the strike would begin Dec. 20, the Associated Press reports.
The security personnel involved do not monitor the security screenings at the terminal. Instead, they are tasked with directing traffic at the terminals and controlling access to non-passenger areas of the airport, such as the runways and tarmac.
A spokesman for the workers told the AP that, if the companies wish to avert a strike, the firms would need to acknowledge the worker’s concerns and, “let us know that they care about us and would like to sit down and talk to us.”
The strike against Air Serv Corp. could include up to 100 employees at the airport. A second group of workers, those employed by Global Elite Group, votes today on whether to strike.
A statement from Air Serv Corp. says the company is reviewing the concerns and that it would be speaking with employees in the future.
