Air Canada customer service and sales staff went on strike at midnight (Eastern) after failing to reach an agreement with the airline.

Earlier, the Canadian Auto Workers union, which represents the 3,800 workers, had tentatively agreed with the airline on some contract issues, but the two sides remained far apart on pensions and wages.

The airline has downplayed the potential impact of a strike and said it will continue to operate a “full flight schedule” if the workers walk out.

Air Canada is urging passengers to avoid delays in the event of a strike by taking these steps:

  • Check in for flights online.
  • Avoid travelling with luggage.
  • Arrive at the airport well ahead of deadlines.
