The airport workers at Newark Liberty International Airport walked off the job at 9 p.m. Tuesday in a labor dispute with their employer, PrimeFlight, a subcontractor for several airlines.

DENVER | About 150 baggage handlers, cabin cleaners and wheelchair attendants are striking at Denver's airport over working conditions and pay.

Union workers at the Newark, LaGuardia, JFK and Philadelphia airports suspended strikes while contract talks continue, the Associated Press reported.

The threat of a strike was raised Tuesday night, as the workers hoped to drive American Airlines back to the negotiating table with Service Employees International Union 32BJ.

That was even after the National Labor Relations Board found the company had violated employment laws.

The workers with SEIU Local 105 provide several services for many of DIA's major airlines.

As a result the workers chose to strike, citing unfair labor practices.

It is not clear exactly how the strike will affect air travel at the airports. Clint Smith, eastern vice president for Prospect Airport Services, which employs about 400 workers, had no comment, nor did Bill Stejskal, PrimeFlight's senior vice president for human resources.
