MORRISVILLE, N.C. (AP) - A baggage handlers’ union plans on picketing at the Raleigh-Durham International Airport to protest how Southwest Airlines treats its employees and customers.

Members of the Transport Workers Union Local 555 when pass out leaflets and hold up picket signs at the passenger drop off area near Terminal 1 starting at 10 a.m. Tuesday.

Union members say Southwest Airlines used to be known as a good place to work with on-time planes. They say management no longer see those things as important.

The union handles baggage for Southwest Airlines. Other chapters protested in 17 cities served by the airline last week.
