    No employment laws prohibit that but since you're in a highly regulated industry, there could be FAA or DOT regulations that apply. I don't think any of the regular responders here have that sort of specialized knowledge. You might want to contact those regulatory agencies and see what they say. I expect the answer will also depend upon what positions you and your co-workers hold and whether they are safety-sensitive jobs.

      Please remove the name of your employer from the post or the moderator will delete it. Just one of the rules of the site.

      What is your actual job?

          In that case there is no public safety issue with you working that many hours. FAA regulations limit the number of hours certain employees may work, but baggage handlers are not among them.
