Air Canada Legislation

March 14, 2012 by staff 

Air Canada Legislation, The House of Commons has passed legislation to send a pair of labour disputes at Air Canada to binding arbitration.

The legislation, which passed 155-124 on Wednesday, covers about 8,600 mechanics, baggage handlers and other ground crew and about 3,000 pilots.

Labour Minister Lisa Raitt had proposed the legislation on Monday, saying a work stoppage at Air Canada was something the country could not afford.

The pilots and the machinists union are the last two groups with which Air Canada needs to reach an agreement following deals with flight attendants and customer service agents.

Air Canada flights were set to stop this week after the airline said it would lock out its pilots and the machinists union said it would strike in the midst of the key spring school break.
