Air Canada announces ratification of new collective agreement by U.K. employees
Air Canada has been advised by UNITE, the union representing the airline’s U.K.-based employees that its members have ratified a new collective agreement reached on January 30th, 2015. The new agreement is in effect until December 31st, 2019. UNITE represents approximately 200 Air Canada concierge service, cargo and clerical staff based in the United Kingdom. This agreement with UNITE follows on the conclusion in October 2014 of a new agreement with Air Canada’s pilots on collective agreement terms for ten years. Earlier in February, Air Canada also reached a tentative collective agreement with the International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT) representing its U.S. workforce.
