MONTREAL - Talks between Air Canada and its flight attendants are continuing today ahead of a strike deadline this week.
The two sides have been discussing their latest proposals exchanged on the weekend.
Federal Labour Minister Lisa Raitt had wanted to meet with both sides today if a deal was not reached by the end of the weekend.
However, the airline and the union are still in round-the-clock talks in Montreal.
The roughly 6,800 flight attendants have threatened to walk off the job early Wednesday morning if their demands aren't met.
However a strike may be short-lived.
A walkout in June by the airline's customer service agents lasted just three days after Raitt introduced back-to -work legislation and the two sides reached a deal before it could be passed into law.
