The Confederation of Canadian Unions proudly supports the “Pull for a Cure” event that raises funds for cancer research. In June 2010, ten air traffic controllers pulled an 18,636 kg airplane across a runway at Pearson Airport in Toronto.
The event garnered huge media attention. Listed above are (from left to right) Michael Belanger of the CCU and Juliet Golden of the Canadian Air Traffic Controllers Association (CATCA), along with CCU President Joanie Cameron Pritchett giving a cheque to Jeff Jansen of CATCA.
Despite several challenges and heat in excess of 35 degrees celcius at the airport, the day was a huge success.
