Air Canada pilots call in sick

An unusually high number of Air Canada pilots called in sick over the weekend prompting the airline to request an investigation by the Canada Industrial Relations Board.
“Air Canada experienced numerous delays and cancellations over the weekend,” the airline said in a statement. “While weather, a disruption caused by a fire at our major hub in Toronto, and other factors affected our operation, some impact was the result of higher-than-usual pilot book-offs.”
“While Air Canada supports the right of its employees to book off when they are unwell or otherwise unfit to work, we cannot condone such activities as part of industrial action to disrupt our operations and we have asked the CIRB to intervene.”
The union representing the pilots did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
