Westjet Pilot Collective Agreement

“We are pleased to see all of our pilots and many other WestJetters who have been affected by this crisis return to work at WestJet.” Chaplain`s Order – Swoop fly WestJet pilots. [Link] The Calgary-based airline says the agreement with WestJet Encore pilots will be subject to ratification by the Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA). Details of the agreement were not disclosed to WestJet. In the final days of 2018, WestJet pilots obtained their first collective agreement from an arbitrator. Both WestJet Master Executive Council (MEC) negotiators and MEC representatives felt that the agreement provides a solid basis, with legally binding working rules, scope protection and a well-defined redress process. Unfortunately, the contract awarded did not contain a contract letter that provided for a process and timetable for the implementation of the new agreement – something that many ALPA pilot groups are used to with an amended contract. WestJet announced Thursday that it has reached an agreement with the Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA) to save more than 1,000 pilot positions. “Our pilots will be a crucial part of our recovery, and maintaining these important roles makes us better able to bounce back and return WestJet to a global airline.” Last year, women around the world increasingly voiced stories of workplace harassment. As a union, we think it is not too much to ask to go to work without fear of the harassment or sexual harassment that might occur there. Unifor`s collective agreements negotiate clear anti-harassment language and appropriate procedures for workers who are victims of harassment and discrimination. Many unions do, but Unifor goes even further to rank for women in the workplace. Unifor membership cards return to our office at an incredible price! You and your employees make a difference as you continue to prove that a union contract is the only way to bring the environment and respect to your workplace. Unifor collective agreements have a language that speaks directly to your right to return to your workplace in the event of dismissal.

Unifor members in the Aeroplan call centres last week ratified a new collective agreement that ended two-tier wages, generous signing bonuses, secured work for members, while the loyalty program goes through a transitional period, and included a stronger language for part-time vacations.

They join 12,000 cabin crew members who are already CUPE members. This follows the fact that at the beginning of the year, WestJet pilots officially joined the Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA) and are part of the world`s largest pilots` union, representing more than 60,000 pilots in Canada and the United States. WestJet and the pilots agreed in May on a settlement process to obtain their first contract through mediation. Now that there are more in-flight staff, it`s time for customer service staff, host service ambassadors and baggage handlers to ensure they also have a voice during this time of change at WestJet.
