UNION, FANS MAD AT PROSPECTS OF ANOTHER CORPORATE ARENA
Published July 20, 1995
A union of Canadian Airlines is upset with their company's plan to pay C$10M to change the name of the Olympic Saddledome in Calgary to the Canadian Airlines Saddledome. Union officials complain that the company is spending that money during a time of difficulty for the "money starved" airline, according to the CANADIAN PRESS. Reportedly, the Flames will also fly for free on Canadian, which will cost the airline an estimated C$850,000 a year (CP/GLOBE AND MAIL, 7/20). In this morning's CALGARY HERALD, a call-in poll found that 237 opposed the name change verses 94 who approved (CALGARY HERALD, 7/20).
