Air Canada-B777-300ER-Nov7

Air Canada has confirmed the ratification of its 10th and final labour agreement with its Canadian unions, completing the airline’s current cycle of labour negotiations and establishing long term contracts extending in most cases over a 10-year duration for all of its approximately 25,000 unionized employees in Canada.

“The ratification of new labour contracts by all of Air Canada’s unionized employees in Canada over the past year and a half is an unprecedented achievement that recognizes the important contribution of our employees and underscores the transformative change that has taken place at Air Canada,” said Air Canada president Calin Rovinescu. “The ratifications of these agreements – 10 in total – provide long term contracts for our employees and are landmarks in the history of Air Canada. Their conclusion brings added stability and flexibility to support long-term and profitable growth of benefit for all stakeholders.”

Members of Unifor, representing the airline’s 88 in-flight crew schedulers, became the 10th and final bargaining unit representing Air Canada’s unionized employees in Canada to have ratified a new contract on long term collective agreement terms.
