Air Canada declares continued uninterrupted operations following threat of strike by Canadian Auto Workers.


Canadian airline Air Canada (Toronto:AC.A) (Toronto:AC.B) said on Friday that its operations will be maintained and uninterrupted following the announcement of a strike mandate from leaders of the Canadian Auto Workers (CAW) union, which was put to the vote with its members and has a deadline of 13 June 2011.

According to the airline, talks over CAW's collective agreement, which expired on 28 February 2011, are set to resume on 24 May 2011 and at CAW's request, a federal conciliator was appointed on 24 March 2011 to facilitate a negotiated settlement.

Air Canada stated that in the event of a strike by Canadian Auto Workers, it will maintain a full operation and implement a contingency service plan at airports and call centres to minimise impact on customers.
