Air Canada ramp crews have walked off the job and are currently staging a demonstration at Terminal 1 in the Pearson International Airport, the Greater Toronto Airports Authority's Scott Armstrong has confirmed.
As of 11:15 p.m., roughly 150 employees were taking part in the demonstration.
Peel police confirmed that six or seven officers were monitoring the scene. There have been no reports of any problems.
Passengers or customers wondering about potential delays can call Air Canada's customer services line at 888-247-2262.
The federal government recently passed legislation banning strikes or lockouts at Air Canada, arguing the move was needed to protect the national economy.
