A release from the UCTE (Union of Canadian Transportation Employees) states that airport workers have issued a strike notice for 6pm Monday. However, even with the strike happening, City CAO Dave Landers says the airport will remain open and operational:

“The airport will absolutely remain open and airport operations will continue. In the event that the members of this local walk off the job and start a strike, we’ll continue to provide reliable, safe airport operations. There will be no changes to flight schedules, the airport itself will remain open,” said Landers.

The UCTE claim this strike can still be avoided if the Mayor and his negotiator come back to the table and are willing to work to establish a fair agreement.
