The Israel Airports Authority (IAA) on Monday reached an agreement with the Ben Gurion Airport Workers Union in which the IAA announced the recruitment of an additional 54 employees and the union promised to reinforce the number of workers in the airport terminal. The deal follows numerous delays caused by slow loading and unloading of luggage. The workers union said that the disruptions were being caused due to a lack of manpower, as the number of passengers flying in and out of Israel rises in holiday season. However, the Israel Airports Authority claimed that the delays were purposely caused by the employees in an attempt to pressure the Airports Authority to add more workers ahead of the holiday season.
