Labour Pains

Friday March 23, 11:09 a.m.

Looks like we're all suffering from a Spring of Our Discontent right now. Toronto is undergoing labour disruption from multiple angles. A wildcat strike by baggage handlers and ground crew at Pearson is making things miserable for passengers, the  city's librarians have been locked out for almost a week, inside workers may be going on strike tonight. Plus, City Hall is locked into this transit debate and the NDP Leadership Convention is taking place here for the next couple of days. And by the way, the TTC will be shutting down a major part of the subway this weekend for repairs. A great time to be a journalist in this city....for other people, not so much.
