Last week they authorized it, today at 1:30 p.m. they take action. The SEIU Local 1877, who is made up of workers such as janitors and wheelchair attendants, are striking to protest after a failed bargaining session about improved wages, benefits and training. According to LAX officials, they are not expecting impacts as these workers fall under the purview of various airline companies. They said to maybe add an extra 10 minutes to your arrival time, which they recommend to be two hours for domestic and three for international.
