On Monday, the air traffic controllers in Thunder Bay bought their American counterparts Do North pizza and wings. 

Jason Leach, the Duluth union representative, said it was nice to get support and know their brothers and sisters are thinking about them. 

He said one of the local flying clubs also bought them Yellow Bike coffee one day. 

The air traffic controllers missed a paycheck on Tuesday, so Leach said it's nice to know people are thinking of them. He said it's great to say the good side of people during a time like this.
