Toronto Airport Caves in...

This is unfortunate...they should have stuck to principle...
A Muslim airport screener who was suspended from her job at Toronto's Pearson airport because her skirt was too long has been allowed to return to work under a compromise with her employer.

The security company, Garda of Canada, has offered the worker, Halima Muse, a full-time administrative job that will allow her to wear civilian attire instead of the uniform required in her previous role, the Teamsters union said in a statement on Wednesday.

Muse's employer had suspended her for wearing a skirt longer than the knee-length garment the company had issued her. She wanted to wear the longer skirt to conform with the Islamic dress code.

The union, which represents security workers at Pearson airport, said Muse would also receive back pay for the three months she was on suspension.

Muse said she is content with the ruling as long as her salary stays the same.

Did you expect anything else with a union and their leftard thinking.This case was a nonstarter with a large number of Sikhs wearing their head dress at Pearson Airport.

When people apply for these kinds of jobs, don't they know ahead of time what's expected in terms of dress, etc?

No Musims expect to change the laws, not abide by existing laws, just look at the world around you, as the long as the nutty Left agree they will succeed.
