Lawyers for St. John’s International Airport and the union that represents their striking employees were in the Supreme Court of Newfoundland and Labrador on Wednesday.
The airport authority is seeking an injunction against the workers’ picketing activities, arguing their actions have been out of control.
A decision is not expected until Friday.
About 85 airport employees, represented by the Public Service Alliance of Canada, have been on strike since Sept. 11.
But unlike the picket line, where tempers can flare, today’s courtroom showdown between lawyers for both sides was limited to cool, legal sparring.
Union lawyer Greg Kirby began by challenging some of the evidence produced by the airport authority.
