Minneapolis, MN - Hundreds of striking Northwest Airline mechanics and their supporters converged Sept. 1 on the hotels where strikebreakers are being housed. Buses chartered by NWA were stopped and the scabs missed their shift at the airport.

At the Holiday Inn in Minneapolis, Aircraft Mechanics Fraternal Association (AMFA) leaders held a press conference in front of a blocked bus. President of AMFA Local 33, Ted Ludwig, announced that the scabs would not be coming to work today. Chants of, “Scabs go home!” rang off the walls of the hotel.

More actions are planned for the coming weeks.
