Wage increase... not likely... not like the airport couldn't afford it... last time i was there 200 dollars for parking 18 days... outrageous!

I'm suprised it took this long for the court to get involved. Let them stand by the roadside and scream all they want.

58% over 4 years is very insane. So what if they didn't get a pay hike in 2009? Just because they didn't get much revenue in 2009 doesn't mean they got double the revenue by now. I understand the cost of living is skyrocketing, and that may explain why there are all these strikes happening across Canada as of lately.
If you workers win your fight, guess where most of your 58% pay hike will go to? You got it - TAXES.
The day the strike finally ends will be when a vast majority of the workers end up fighting for so long, ending up in debt by the spring, and being forced to move to Alberta where there is more of a guarantee for work. I bet the Airport Authority is looking forward to all the striking workers leaving on their own free will, and after all the workers leave, they'll just give the offer the union turned down to newbies born in the 1970s and 1980s who would be more than happy to have a job and doesn't have as huge of expenses.

Who cares? :
I've been to the the airport 3 times since the "strike" has begun. Not once was i delayed. The service didn't seem any different. The airport looked clean and tidy. They've been striking for 6 weeks? They're not an essential service to the operations, in my opinion. Leave them out there. 58% over the next 4 years? That's crazy...there is no toehr word to decsribe it.

58% in 4 years? That the most insane thing I have ever heard in my life! 4% or5% a year is a high raise, but 14.5% a year is totally insane. I hope they wake up or it could be a cold winter on the picket line.

A 58% raise over 4 years, no sympathy here !! Where in the real world does this happen, pretty sure nowhere. They are not even comparing apples and apples, do they think everyone is as stunned as them !!
