600 Airport Workers Might Leave LAX in the Lurch

600 Airport Workers Might Leave LAX in the Lurch
Ryan Boyd

According to a statement on Monday from Nicholas Fernandez, a representative of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace workers, a labor dispute could lead to massive delays and technical difficulties at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and several other airports besides, should the organization decide to pull 600 workers from the airport.

The current labor dispute revolves around severance packages proposed by Swissport International, which Fernandez scoffed at as unacceptable.

“I’m trying to keep them at the table. We’re trying to bargain in good faith,” said Fernandez.
