Members of the Air Canada Pilots Association have ratified an agreement on collective agreement terms for ten years.
In addition to labour stability and long term cost certainty, the agreement also provides for increased flexibility with respect to regional airline capacity purchase agreements to help ensure cost competitiveness. In addition, it facilitates the evolution of Air Canada rouge into a stronger leisure carrier with improved fleet renewal flexibility and terms. As well, the agreement provides additional codeshare and joint venture flexibility and scope.
The agreement, subject to certain openers and benchmarks over the 10 year period, has been approved by the Air Canada Board of Directors.
The Air Canada Pilots Association membership comprises approximately 3,000 pilots.
