Security workers at JFK Airport who work for Air Serv authorized a strike Thursday for December 20, the middle of the Christmas rush, if their concerns are not addressed.

The officers employed by Global Elite will vote Friday.

Workers say they're unable to do their job effectively.

They say they are rushed into doing plane searches with shoddy equipment, causing security gaps at the airport.

The workers are not unionized, but are being supported by a local union.

In a statement, Air Serv said it's reviewing the concerns and plans to talk with its workers in the coming days and weeks.

Global Elite Group said it provides resources to its employees and that safety and security are their top priority.
