Protesting Air Controllers Wear Dresses

The next time you fly, your safety could be in the hands of an air traffic controller wearing a dress -- and he's a guy.

Some controllers have been protesting a government dress code, by wearing women's clothing to work. Union spokesman Doug Church said the controllers are showing how ridiculous the regulations are because they don't bar men from wearing dresses. Shorts, jeans, T-shirts and halter tops are on the banned list.

The unionized controllers are also upset about changes in schedules, work breaks and pay issues.
