Air Canada pilots back strike mandate
(Reuters) - Air Canada's pilots, who are in talks with the airline on a new labor contract, voted overwhelmingly in favor of giving their bargaining committee the right to call a strike, the pilots union said on Tuesday.
Some 97 percent of the members of the Air Canada Pilots Association (ACPA) who voted backed a strike mandate. More than 97 percent of pilots took part in the vote.
Having a strike mandate does not mean the pilots will go on strike.
