A company that services Canada’s fleet of military transport and search and rescue aircraft is seeking a court order to prevent striking workers from picketing on private property.
In a notice of civil claim filed in BC Supreme Court, Cascade Aerospace says Unifor local 114 members are illegally picketing, intimidating and threatening employees, obstructing and impeding road access, and creating a nuisance.
The company says it’s suing under the Trespass Act.
It says the loss and damage to business, reputation and good will caused by the striking workers is in excess of $50,000.
More than 400 employees have been on strike since June 4th in an apparent dispute over benefits and concessions.
