Isabelle Arthur who speaks for Air Canada says the airline's flight schedule will be back to normal by the end of the day Friday or by Saturday morning at the latest.

She says an injunction ordering baggage handlers back to work was handed down this morning.

The baggage handlers staged a wildcat walkout at several airports including Montreal's Trudeau Airport this morning to protest against the suspension of 3 co-workers in Toronto.

The union says they were disciplined for criticizing Labour Minister Lisa Raitt when she got off a plane yesterday.
