Air Canada Anticipates No Impact From Toronto Pearson Strike

Twitter  Steve Cox Birmingham Airport has been under pressure after staff sickness caused huge delays

Authorities at Toronto's Pearson International Airport, Canada's busiest, warned travelers that a strike by about 700 ground crew workers could affect some flights Friday.

The striking workers are employed by Swissport and include baggage and cargo handlers, cabin cleaners and other ground crew.

The workers rejected a contract proposal from Swissport by a 95 per cent margin, Badial told reporters.

"This is about respect and we are sending a message to Swissport tonight, and I hope they are listening".

On Thursday, July 27, 2017, the union representing Swissport employees at Pearson International Airport announced a strike.

Michael Peck, a passenger flying with Sunwing, an airline serviced by Swissport, said the striking workers had not made it hard for him to get into the airport. Teamsters Local 419, the union representing the workers, say the company hired 250 temporary workers last May and that they only received three to four days of training, rather than the three to four weeks given to their union counterparts. He scoffed at the notion that Swissport said it was the final offer.

"Swissport just wasn't interested", said Badial. British Airways said it had a contingency plan and would continue to operate all its flights.

Air Transat and British Airways said they had plans to avoid flight delays or cancellations.

Pierre Payette, Swissport Canada's vice president of operations, said the company has bargained in good faith throughout contract talks.
