Sunwing pilots strike?


#1

I am just wondering if anyone else has heard anything about a possible strike by the Sunwing pilots? We are supposed to fly to Holguin on Jan 23rd.
Does anyone know what Sunwing’s policy is if they strike before we leave? While we are in Cuba??

Like Air Canada last year. Do I hear breaths being held?


#3

Their contract expired sometime in later November. Negotitations are on going very slowly.

Yes Spunky you do. And my fingers are crossed too.


#5

Fingers and toes here too. Lot’s of members here in the Maritimes rely on Sunwing.


#6

Yikes, us here in QC too, departure end of February…

Good questions that warrant answers.


#7

I have emailed Sunwing and sent a message on their facebook page. Still waiting…

Here’s a link to a 20 December newspaper article: pilots were filing for conciliation and the establishment of a strike deadline.
