Airport security

Does tighter airport security infringe staff privacy?

When Dublin Airport increased video surveillance amid rising theft staff went on strike
When Dublin Airport recently increased video surveillance following rising incidents of theft, especially duty free items, staff protested by threatening to strike. Employees objected to the prospect of intrusive monitoring from additional cameras in their workplace.

It highlights a challenge that many airlines and airports face, balancing the need for tight security in an age of terrorism, against the rights of workers not to be under constant surveillance. 

The BBC's Russell Padmore compiled this report.
