WS CEO says airline felt effects of rebooked flights for months after strike threat

WestJet president and CEO Ed Sims said the airline continued to feel the effects of passenger rebooking for months after pilots threatened to strike in May.

“Guests will typically book up to six months ahead, so I think we were still living with some effects of that as recently as the last few weeks,” Sim said during an editorial board meeting.

Isn't that the entire purpose of strikes and threats thereof?

Yes, the purpose of strikes and threats of strikes is to undermined the ability of your employer to be profitable and reduce job security and the ability to argue for an increase in wages.

Union or no union, companies that are successful in the long-term have good working relationships with their employees are resolve these types of issues far away from the attention of customers.
