Skip to comments.Thousands Of LAX Workers Set For Walkout On Thanksgiving Eve
Posted on 11/16/2012 1:08:34 PM PST by null and void
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) Employees at Los Angeles International Airport were considering plans on Friday to walk off the job ahead on what is traditionally the busiest traveling day of the year.
A coalition of Southland labor and community leaders are calling for the protest of alleged violations by LAX contractor Aviation Safeguards (AVSG) after breaking their contract with the airport earlier this year.
Andrew Gross-Gaitan, the director of the Southern California Airports Division of SEIU, told KNX 1070 NEWSRADIO that AVSG over 400 LAX workers without affordable family health care when it failed to comply with the citys Living Wage Ordinance.
When peoples lives are on the line, their family members are on the line, theyre not going to be able to enjoy their Thanksgiving, said Gross-Gaitan. This is really a critical moment for thousands of workers.
As many as 1,000 airport workers and union supporters are expected to march on Century Boulevard just as an estimated 1.8 million passengers are expected at travel through LAX over the holiday weekend.
SEIU workers in March staged a protest outside the Tom Bradley International Terminal, but despite some congestion, passengers were not prevented from entering the building.
This time, however, Gross-Gaitan would not dismiss the potential for severe disruptions to airport operations during the protest.
Its entirely possible there will be significant travel delays, he said.
Five months, was it?
Oh well. This is what American wanted. This is what America got.
Nah. Gotta be a coincidence.
Five months, was it?

Welcome to California.
LAX workers. Yep.
As the system continues it's collapse, I will merely smile, and clean and bore-sight my Glock.
I am learning to ENJOY the collapse of America. It's broke, let her die.
No, this is what HALF of the voters wanted. Buttcrack only won by 3 million votes more.
Then again, I always dreamed of a 2nd American revolution so I’m alright with these pukes screwing it up.
