Gate Gourmet Strike Follow Up

We have had many members reaching out with questions about exactly what they should be doing during the disruptions we are facing with the Gate Gourmet strike in Toronto. Some members are reported to have been helping and moving trolleys around that are at the aircraft door. We do not recommend that you take on any additional duties such as moving trolleys as this may create a Health and Safety hazard. We do not want to interfere with the rights of these unionized workers or create an unsafe workspace so we must focus on our required safety tasks, boarding and monitoring the cabin.

Essentially, we suggest that you carry on with business as usual. We know that this puts some members in a difficult situation. Our natural tendency is to do all in our power to ensure that no one is inconvenienced. Unfortunately, strikes can cause inconvenience. That is why they can be an effective tool in the unionized work force. If you have any questions about this, please let us know. We are here to help and to provide guidance.

In solidarity,
