Food service strike continues into third and final day at airport
HONOLULU - Saturday is the last day of a planned three day strike by food workers at Daniel K. Inouye International Airport.
The Unite Here Local 5 union, which includes food service employees who work at the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL), is picketing for better wages.
Food service company HMS Host says, "We are disappointed that Unite Here Local 5 has chosen to stage a strike during this busy holiday season even though we are actively working on a new agreement and have offered substantial pay and benefit enhancements for our almost 550 valued associates at HNL. As we work towards a fair agreement, we will continue to provide service to our travelers and ensure they are taken care of during this hectic time of year."
During this time there is limited service available at the various food and drink establishments throughout the airport which will significantly impact travelers.
