Several protesters were arrested Wednesday near Los Angeles International Airport, on this, the busiest travel day of the year.
About one-thousand people participated on behalf of airport workers, as people headed out of town for Thanksgiving.
They're upset after an L-A-X contractor broke its agreement with the airport.
Protesters said they were marching against unfair labor practices.
Some of them are members of the Service Employees International Union, which represents janitors, skycaps, security guards and others.
Airport officials are advising travelers to arrive earlier than normal because of the protest.
The arrests happened after people refused to leave an intersection.
