Labor march could affect LA airport travelers
LOS ANGELES — A labor march could delay Thanksgiving eve travelers at Los Angeles International Airport on one of the busiest travel days of the year.
Members of the Service Employees International Union are expected to march between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. Wednesday outside the Century Boulevard entrance to the airport. The union is in a dispute with an airport services company that no longer has SEIU contracts.
Travelers have been advised to add 90 minutes to their planned airport arrival time on top of the usual two hours before a domestic flight and three hours before an international flight.
Airport officials report that traffic in and around the airport has been flowing normally during the day’s peak travel period, which began at 6 a.m. and ends at 9 a.m.
