Air Canada and pilots conclude agreement

Air Canada has concluded amendments to its existing long-term labour agreement with the 3,500 pilots represented by the Air Canada Pilots Association (ACPA).

The airline said that the new amendments to the ten-year agreement, which was reached in Oct. 2014, provide added commercial and operational flexibility, as well as improved cost competitiveness and career growth opportunities for its pilots.

“These amendments recognize the valuable contribution of our pilots and provide additional flexibility and cost competitiveness that further strengthens Air Canada’s ability to compete effectively in today’s global competitive environment,” commented Benjamin Smith, president, passenger airlines.

“I thank our respective teams for their insights and productive discussions enabling us to ‘Win as One Air Canada.’”
