Union protesers turned out in force on May Day to object to working conditions at the airport.

Nearly two million people are expected to travel through Los Angeles International Airport over the long Thanksgiving weekend. But a march by hundreds of LAX workers this afternoon is threatening to shut down Century Blvd, the main route into the airport. 

The employees are protesting what their union calls "unfair labor practices." 

KPCC's Ben Bergman joins us now from LAX.
