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

This prompted workers who handle bags, wheelchair services and the people who clean United's planes to protest.

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

CAC defers decision on new coach for India
Klusener has also applied for the post with some experience of coaching provincial sides in domestic leagues in South Africa. Ganguly hinted that the coach will be picked before the Sri Lanka tour that begins with the first Test on July 26.

The workers voted to walk out Tuesday night over what they described as "unfair labor practices" but called off the strike early Wednesday morning.

The strikes will have a noticeable effect on all three airports, Paye said, and the company will have a hard time replacing the workers for the duration.

The labor dispute is between the workers and a private company, PrimeFlight Aviation Services.

Hundreds of workers walked off the job late Tuesday night at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey and LaGuardia Airport in NY.

The strike will continue through Wednesday and possibly Thursday and is due to workers' long standing attempts to unionize being blocked by PrimeFlight.

It wasn't clear how the strike would affect air travel at the airports. The strike would continue for at least three days.
