Airport dispute globally significant for workers


airport dispute globally significant for workersWhile the dispute that saw over 700 ground crew workers walk out in protest against Swissport Canada’s attempts to contract out and casualise its workforce may be over, other issues remain. It has been revealed that the Greater Toronto Airport Authority (GTAA) is in support of the privatisation of Toronto Pearson Airport. This will only lead to more insecure work practices and lower wages for workers. Workers at airports all around the world have a stake in opposing this attempt by the GTAA to drive down wages and conditions. Only by engaging in co-ordinated actions can aviation workers take on the power of these global companies.
