Airport Workers Win Baggage Battle

YERUSHALAYIM (Hamodia Staff) -

Whether it was a strike or just a manpower shortage, either way, Ben Gurion airport workers got their way on Thursday, as the Israel Airports Authority agreed to hire fifty more people to handle the baggage that wasn’t getting handled on Wednesday, Globes reported.

After hasty negotiations amid flight disruptions, management committed to taking on the extra personnel in order to cope with the heavy traffic during the summer months, until after the chagim in October.

As a result, stranded and delayed passengers began to find their bags and continued with their travel plans.
