Canada: Update – WestJet to refund cancelled flights if pilots go on strike from 22 May

WestJet is working to reassure its customers following word that its pilots have voted overwhelming in favour of going on strike to press their demand for a contract.

Pilots will be in a legal position to commence job action on May 19, but now say they won’t strike before May 22.  The union says the pilots have committed to not
disrupting passenger travel plans over the Victoria Day long weekend.

The company says if flights are canceled due to a labour dispute, it will provide refunds.
