A series of concessions by labour leaders across the country has put a dampener on the mood of the labour movement recently. Workers have been told that all they can hope for are reduced benefits, less job security, and they should be thankful to even have a job. However, a wildcat strike by hundreds of Air Canada workers across the country have shown that in spite of a timid leadership, workers are prepared to mount a massive fight against the bosses’ austerity agenda and flex their collective muscle. More importantly, this show of strength can actually work and result in victory for workers.
