The results of a 10-day strike vote are expected to be released this afternoon.
Unless a last-minute deal is reached, a strike would be Air Canada's second labour disruption in three months.
About 3,800 customer sales and service representatives represented by the Canadian Auto Workers union held a three-day strike in June.
Union officials say Air Canada employees are mad about concessions made for more than a decade to make the Montreal-based airline financially viable.
