Pear­son ground crew work­ers be­gin strike

The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

About 700 ground crew work­ers at Canada’s busiest air­port went on strike Thurs­day night af­ter they re­jected a con­tract of­fer from their em­ployer. The mem­bers rep­re­sented by the Team­sters union marched at Toronto’s Pear­son In­ter­na­tional Air­port wav­ing picket signs and chant­ing “re­spect.” “We’re hop­ing to have lit­tle or no im­pact on the pub­lic,” union spokesman Har­jin­der Ba­dial told re­porters. The labour dis­pute could have an im­pact on some op­er­a­tions at Pear­son, but the Greater Toronto Air­ports Au­thor­ity ear­lier said it had a con­tin­gency plan in place in the event of a strike or labour dis­rup­tion but did not pro­vide de­tails.
