UNITED STATES OF AMERICA: Wildcat “Sick-Out” Disrupts Airport Security Screenings in New York and Seattle

7 January 2019

Local sources indicated that security screenings at LaGuardia (LGA/KLGA) and SeaTac (SEA/KSEA) airports in New York City and Seattle, Washington, were experiencing delays due to a wildcat “sick-out” strike of Transport Security Administration (TSA) workers in response to an ongoing federal government shutdown. Flight operations are unaffected.

ADVICE: Anticipate disruptions to security screenings at affected airports in the near-term. Allow for additional travel time.
