Air Canada Workers

March 23, 2012 by staff 

Air Canada Workers, A dozen or more striking Air Canada ground workers defied an injunction and their own union Friday to continue a wildcat walkout that snarled air traffic across the country.

By 11:30 a.m., the 13-hour wildcat that spread to other airports was effectively over, but not without throwing Air Canada’s domestic flight schedule into chaos for at least the entire day.

The workers in Toronto walked out Thursday night, after some of them were disciplined for heckling federal Labour Minister Lisa Raitt.

Ground workers in Montreal, Quebec City and Vancouver followed for a few hours today in solidarity, further disrupting air traffic.

Air Canada asked for and won a civil injunction at midmorning. Shortly afterwards, the IAMAW union learned that most of the discipline against 37 workers because of the Raitt incident had been rescinded.
