As of Tuesday morning, nearly 4,000 customer service workers at Air Canada went on strike. Unionized under the Canadian Autoworkers (CAW), the Air Canada workers are one of four unions currently fighting for better wages and to defend their pension rights from the company. Since 2004, workers at Air Canada have had their wages frozen (an effective 10% wage cut) while the airline and its executive collect massive profits.
