“This agreement is beneficial for the long-term sustainability of WestJet, WestJet Dispatchers and our WestJetters,” said Jeff Martin, WestJet chief operations officer. “We thank our employees for their collaboration and openness to reaching an agreement.”

“This is a positive step in the right direction and a testament to WestJetters working together,” said Justin Jones, WestJet CALDA chair.
