On November 17th 1981 I started a part time job at YYZ. I worked loading aircraft for a large private ground handler. After a few years and moving up to shift manager In October 1989 I was laid off due to an airline merger and the subsequent loss of work for my company. A contact position for approximately 4 months got me to a job with Transport Canada. With the airport being transferred I ended up with another employer same job. Now on November 11th 2020 I will be retiring from working at YYZ. A part time job became a career. I met my wife. Had the best view at the airport met many great people and did enjoy myself. Covid accelerated the process and while I’ll miss the work I won’t miss my 0430 alarm.
