- Pearson Ground Crew Strike Continues after Union Votes 98% against Swissport Contract Offer
The union representing some 700 baggage handlers, cabin cleaners and other ground crew has voted overwhelmingly against a contract offer by Swissport, meaning workers won’t be ending their work stoppage, which has gone on four weeks already.
Teamsters Local 419 says 98 percent of its members voted to reject the deal.
Members should expect delays at the airport to continue. CIFFA will contact the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) today to express our concerns about the impacts of the strike.
