YVR Workers May Strike During the Labour Day Long Weekend
Heading out of town for the Labour Day long weekend? Sorry, folks. You might be in trouble if you’re flying. Travellers flying to or from Vancouver this weekend may face significant delays or even cancellations if almost 350 unionized airport workers go on strike this Friday. The Public Service Alliance of Canada issued a 72-hour strike notice Tuesday warning the public to contact their airline in the event of strike action.
The basic gist of the conflict: the union is upset that Vancouver Airport Authority is spending millions on capital projects yet proposing rollbacks for the staff.
