Security screeners who work for Garda, and are sub-contracted to the Canadian Air Transportation Security Agency for air travel security screening at Toronto Pearson, have been "working to rule" for the past three days now. Apparently Garda received an injuction from the Industrial Relations Board ordering the screeners to cease slowing things down at the airport, where flight delays of up to 2 hours are reported.
So, if they are working to the letter of the contract, what exactly can the IRB, Garda, or CATSA, realistically do? It seems to me that the workers are fully within the law to behave as they are. But the media is making out like the workers are the enemy.
In my opinion, the workers chose an excellent time to do this, i.e. the start of the Thanksgiving holiday weeking. Good on them!
