Labor Actions By Airport Security?

Fri Dec 22, 2006 6:21 am

You've heard of pilot slowdowns during labor disputes, making sure everything is OK with the plane before going. That's old.

The new hotness is security slowdowns, making sure everything is OK with YOU and your bag before letting you though. Management reacts by eliminating security checks.


An investigation report by Transport Canada says the "security screening process was circumvented … in some cases it was abandoned altogether."

The report says that on Oct. 10, no bags were searched and X-ray images were ignored.

On Oct. 11, "strollers were allowed through the screening point without being searched," the report said.
