Congratulations on making it to Wednesday, friend.A class action against Air Canada was approved by the Superior Court of Quebec. The plaintiffs claim Air Canada has been overcharging passengers for fuel charges described on its website “as a measure to offset partially the volatility of and fluctuations in operating costs associated with the price of fuel.” They claim in reality, the charges are so elevated they cover the costs of fuel altogether, meaning Air Canada did not conform to its own definition of the charge. According to the plaintiffs, Air Canada changed the definition on its website on Nov. 29, 2014. Thus, they requested a class action for anyone in Quebec who purchased an international Air Canada flight ticket between April 15, 2012 and Nov. 28, 2014, excluding the United States, Mexico and the Caribbean.Quebec’s administrative labour tribunal invalidated regional hiring priority clauses in the construction industry. The issue stem from the demands of regional workers. They want to be able to work at construction sites in their own areas, rather than having a contractor who wins a contract come with his own workers from another region. Judge Raymond Gagnon said in his decision that employees’ right to privacy and their freedom to establish their homes in a place that is convenient to them is being infringed upon. Gagnon said he sees a “force of inertia” and a system that has “become difficult to justify in the current economic and social context. It is therefore not possible to justify the current rules of regional hiring priority.” Though the tribunal is invalidating two articles of the Regulation respecting the hiring and mobility of employees in the construction industry, it’s suspending its decision until collective agreements in the construction industry can be renegotiated.A mysterious person keeps leaving televisions on front porches in a Virginia neighbourhood. More than 50 TVs have been left so far, the Richmond Times-Dispatch reports. Police lieutenant Matt Pecka told the newspaper that a person with a “TV-shaped headgear” was caught on video placing one of the TVs: “They walk up to the house, place the set neatly on the front step, turn around and walk away.” While odd, leaving TVs in front of people’s houses is probably not a crime. Anyhow, the person or persons on this TV spree remain at large.With files from Presse Canadienne.
