Trudeau International workers vote in favor of strike mandate

Screening officers at Trudeau International Airport are threatening to go on strike. 

Close to 1,000 screening officers are employed at the Montreal airport.

97 per cent voted in favor of a strike mandate after workers rejected the latest offer from Sécuritas, the company that employs them. 

The workers are asking for better wages, group insurance, and higher overtime pay.

As part of their jobs, the agents screen and clear passengers, search luggage, and check vehicles at checkpoints. 

It is not yet clear if or when they will go on strike, but if they do, it could create complications and delays for passengers.
