Jean-François Carpentier is representing Lory-Ann Trépanier Bouchard, who filed, before the Québec Superior Court, a Motion for Authorization to Institute a Class Action against l’Association internationale des machinistes et des travailleurs et travailleuses de l’aérospatiale (AIMTA) et la Section locale 2323 de l’AIMTA.
By Judgment of July 5, 2013, the Québec Superior Court granted the Motion for Authorization.
The group consists of (unofficial translation):
“All individuals whose direct, stopover-free flight with or operated by Air Canada or Jazz was cancelled on March 23rd, 2012 solely because of Air Canada baggage handlers’, members of the Defendants, illegal strike at the Montréal-Trudeau International Airport and the Québec City Jean Lesage International Airport. “Cancelled flight” is understood to mean only the first segment of a flight leaving from Montréal or Québec City or the last segment of a flight to Montréal or Québec City”.
The Motion to Institute Proceedings was served and filed in the Court record. We will continue to provide updates on this case.
