Australia's Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has urged security staff at international airports to reconsider industrial action planned for Easter weekend following the attacks in Brussels.
A 24-hour strike is planned at airports and sea ports across Australia as part of a two-year pay dispute.
Immigration and Border Force staff will be involved.
Disruptions are expected at major international airports in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.
Malcolm Turnbull told Channel 7 he’s calling on the union to reconsider the strike.
"We strongly encourage them to rethink their call for industrial action and stay at work and pursue their complaints, their disagreements with the government through other means," Turnbull said.
But the Prime Minister has assured people that the police presence at the airport will be bolstered.
"Assuming the union is not minded to change its industrial strategy, I have discussed this very issue with the AFP and as you know the Australian Federal Police are not part of this industrial action."
The union organising the action will make a statement later today.
