CHICAGO (WLS) -- Hundreds of workers at O'Hare International Airport delayed their plans to strike until after the busy Thanksgiving holiday travel weekend.

Workers plan to strike on Tuesday.

Janitors, baggage handlers, cabin cleaners and wheelchair attendants plan to hit the picket line in an effort to get $15 an hour and union rights.

The strike does not affect jobs such as security screeners or air traffic controllers.
