Janitors who clean Delta and United airlines planes at Boston's Logan International Airport have ended their 24-hour strike.

The more than 100 Aramark Corp. employees clean toilets and remove trash from planes parked overnight. They say many have received wages of between $8 and $9 an hour with few or no benefits.

They say the strike was to combat Aramark's bad faith in negotiations for their first union contract. They say they got their message across with the strike, which ended Thursday night.

Philadelphia-based Aramark hasn't responded to telephone and e-mail messages seeking comment.

Chicago-based UAL Corp. subsidiary United Airlines Inc. says it had backup resources to service planes and operate flights normally. Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines Inc. has no comment.
