Rome baggage snafu blamed on workers
by UPI

ROME -- Rome's Fiumicino airport came under investigation by civil aviation inspectors Monday after numerous travelers lodged complaints of missing luggage.

Travelers filed numerous complaints Sunday when thousands of pieces of luggage were failed to be loaded onto departing planes, causing customers to wait up to an hour and a half to receive their effects, Italy's ANSA reported.

ENAC, Italy's civil aviation agency, said it suspects the baggage issues have been going on for about a month due to "sabotage" by workers.

It said workers have been messing with the equipment in ways not easily detectable, such as sticking chewing gum over the barcode reader that sorts the luggage or using plastic bags to jam the conveyor belts.

But top union official Walter Mancini said, "they are trying to blame the workers when the problem is the system. There are too many suitcases and too few people to handle them."
