(Reuters) - The private company that maintains some of Air Canada's fleet posted a letter on its website on Tuesday terminating all of its employees.

The company, which does heavy maintenance for Canada's No. 1 airline, obtained bankruptcy protection on Monday, and laid off workers in its airframe division.

Previously, it had told all employees not to report to work until they received further notice from the company website.
