JFK security guards decide to hold off on strike threatened for Dec. 20

Associated Press

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Security guards at John F. Kennedy International Airport who had been threatening a strike around the holidays have decided to hold off pending meetings with their employers.

The employees of Air Serv Corp. and Global Elite Group Inc. had voted last week to authorize a strike on Dec. 20 over issues including training and equipment.

On Tuesday, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which runs the airport, had asked the sides to work together to resolve their differences.

Security worker Prince Jackson said the workers decided Tuesday to hold off pending the outcome of the meetings.

Air Serv said it valued its employees' input, and would be speaking to them. Global said it continues to have a dialogue with its workers.
