I have an upcoming flight from FLL on Air Canada. I am curious if the check in agent strike extends to the US as well? I doubt i can get on this flight by mere online check in hence the questions. By looking around,it appears that the strike is only in Canada (the Air Canada website refers to 9 Canadian airports being affected) but I am just trying to make sure there are no spill over effects on travel on the US side too. I would appreciate if someone can share their travel experience since the strike began.
The strike appears to be in full swing in Canada according to the news reports.

It only applies to AC customer service agent employees who are in the CAW. I don't think we have our own employees in FLL, so it would not really affect your flight all that much. There may be a minor delay on the inbound flight if anything.
The CDN govt said it will be legislating AC strikers back to work on Thursday if there has'nt been a deal reached.

Just print your boarding card prior to arrival at the airport and take carry on to minimize delays. Management is maning the ticket/checkin/baggage-check counters. If you need those services it will just take longer. In all cases just allow extra time.

Check your flight for delays before arriving at the airport. A colleague of mine was to fly to PEK day before yesterday and arrived at YYZ 3 hours before to give himself time. Flight was delayed by 3 hours. He was at the airport for 6 hours.
