Canada to prevent Air Canada flight attendants’ strike

Airline hopes to reach compromise with union today

The Canadian government is drafting back-to-work legislation that would force Air Canada employees to return to work if they choose to strike against the airline tomorrow.

Last night, Air Canada, the nation’s biggest airline, met with union members representing its 6,800 flight attendants in hopes of reaching an agreement on wage and pension issues. A strike is expected if the two groups do not reach an agreement tonight, and it would likely disrupt international flights.
