Workers at Porter Airlines, a Toronto based commuter airline that flies out of the downtown Toronto Island Airport went on strike on yesterday.
These are the workers who are responsible for fueling aircraft at the airport and are members of the Canadian Office & Professional Employees (COPE). They just organized into a union in August and are trying to get their first contract.
Managment is using other Porter employees apparently to scab the strike and there's a serious safety concern because these folks have had very little training.
