Swissport YYZ Strike Nears End

Swissport Strike at Toronto Pearson Airport Finally Ending 2017-10-17

After months of disruption and thousands of dollars in additional costs such as driver wait time, borne not by the airlines or the ground handlers but by the freight forwarders orchestrating the pick-up and delivery of air cargo into Toronto’s Pearson Airport, The Globe and Mail reports striking ground crews have accepted a tentative contract.
 
Employees at Swissport voted 63 percent in favour of the new agreement reached earlier this month and will return to work on Wednesday.
 
The Teamsters, which represents the workers, says the three-year deal contains minor improvements on wages, benefits and scheduling.
 
The 700 ramp equipment operators, baggage handlers, cabin cleaners, and other ground crew workers went on strike July 27.
