Flight delay caused by Baggage Handlers union

On Tues June 25th our 8 hour flight from Barcelona to Toronto was delayed 2 hours while sitting on the plane ready for take-off. Because the contracted baggage people had reached the end of their shift. Our carrier had to quickly find another company to finish the job.
Will probably never travel again to Europe! I have never seen this happen before!

Or Germany, England....or USA. Airport worker strikes and disruptions are common in much of the world.

Enjoy Canada.
