LOS ANGELES (AP) - Hundreds of union members have begun a permitted march near the entrance to Los Angeles International Airport, where travelers have been warned to arrive early in case of traffic snarls.
Members of the Service Employees International Union began marching at midday Wednesday, with a large police presence standing by. The union is in a dispute with an airport services company that no longer has SEIU contracts.
The march began several hours after the end of the airport's peak travel period, but authorities nonetheless urged fliers to add 90 minutes to their planned airport arrival time on top of the usual two hours before a domestic flight and three hours before an international flight.
Police have planned a series of moving road closures to divert traffic around the march.
