Huge Queues at Ben Gurion Airport Customs Due to work Dispute


Long lines of incoming passengers have formed at the customs inspection positions at Ben Gurion Airport Thursday morning, because of a work dispute between the customs workers and the Finance Ministry. The customs officials are purposely making every single passenger pass through the Red Track, which involves having his luggage opened and inspected, and not the Green Track, through which most passengers are usually allowed to pass if they have no goods to declare.

The empolyees are unhappy about their wages and about the fact that no one in the Finance Ministry wants to sit down and talk to them, they said.
