    Apparently Canadian screeners are having a bit of a laboUr action ... So why is a Canadian media outlet running a file photo of a TSA checkpoint as part of an article on Canadian airport screening? Have they no pride?

    Canada.com: Too early for Ottawa's intervention in airport screeners' labour dispute: union

    Ottawa's intervention in a labour dispute involving airport security screeners in the Atlantic provinces is "premature," the union that represents the workers said Saturday.

    Federal Labour Minister Lisa Raitt said Friday that she had asked the Canada Industrial Relations Board to review the situation and ensure that public safety would not be affected by a work stoppage.

    But Boyd Bussey of the United Steelworkers in St. John's, N.L., said there's still time for the union and their employer, Securitas Transport Aviation Security Limited, to return to the negotiating table.
