Tell Air Canada to Respect Unite Here Local 40’s Picket Line! Sign The Petition!

Dear Allies,

Sheraton Vancouver Airport Hotel workers have just surpassed 3 months on strike. 

Currently, Air Canada is placing distressed passengers at the Sheraton’s neighbouring sister hotels, the Hilton Vancouver Airport Hotel and Marriott Vancouver Airport Hotel.

By doing this, they are in direct violation of the BC Federation of Labours’ public boycott, and they are undermining the strike. The Sheraton, Hilton, and Marriott are all behind picket lines.

These workers welcome the world to Vancouver but cannot afford to live here; most hotel staff earn less than the Metro Vancouver living wage of $24.08 per hour.

In Q1 of 2023, Air Canada posted a record-breaking quarterly revenue of $4.9 billion (1). This shows that they clearly have the means to send distressed passengers to a hotel that isn’t behind a picket line.

Take action! Send an email to Air Canada urging them to stop booking distressed passengers at the Sheraton Vancouver Airport, Hilton Vancouver Airport and Marriott Vancouver Airport Hotel for the duration of the strike.
