Suspension, Discriminatory Treatment, Strike, Adjudication, Gander


In August of 1981 some 13,500 American air traffic controllers went on an illegal strike. On the direction of President Reagan they were fired. Across Canada Canadian air traffic controllers, members of the Canadian Air Traffic Controllers Association, reacted to the strike and the firing. This adjudication concerns air traffic controllers at the Gander Control Centre who were suspended, in almost all cases for one day, for their reactions. Vice-Chairman J. Maurice Cantin has already made an award with respect to the Toronto air traffic controllers who were discharged for activities arising from the American strike and firing.
