The union representing 700 workers at one of the biggest  baggage and ramp handling companies at Toronto’s Pearson International airport could be in a strike position on Thursday.

Christopher Monette, spokesman for Teamsters Local 419, says the union will encourage its members to vote down Swissport’s final offer – and if that happens, the Swissport employees  who work as baggage and cargo handlers and cabin cleaners for 30 of 74 airlines at Pearson will be able to walk off the job on Thursday night.

The union has previously raised concerns about the hiring and alleged poor training – of 250 temporary workers by Swissport.
