Air Canada Strike
June 11, 2011 by staff
Air Canada Express – formerly Air Canada Jazz – is an independent company and is not affected by work stoppages, said Air Canada spokeswoman Angela Mah “It’s going to remain as before,” said Mah. It also provides guarantees for local passengers with connecting flights with Air Canada. “In the case of a work stoppage, we have a contingency plan and we fully intend to continue our operations.”
Ed Ratuski, manager of airport operations in Kamloops, he said the same.
“Right now, we’re not expecting any problems here,” he said.
Negotiations between the airline and the Canadian Auto Workers continue through the weekend in an effort to avoid industrial action.
“We’re still waiting to reach an agreement before the deadline.”
A key issue in the talks is a proposal to change company pension plans.
The CAW, which represents 3,800 Air Canada customer service and airport workers, was able; to meet at 72 is on Friday for a strike from midnight on 13 June. The union has already rejected the idea of?? Rotating strikes as the Canadian Union of Postal Workers across the country.
However, both the company and the union have committed to continue negotiating until the last minute.
