It’s good news for air travellers!

A strike has been averted at WestJet.

Representatives with the airline and the union, for hundreds of workers at the Calgary and Vancouver airports, have reached a tentative labour deal.

The tentative agreement was announced last evening, days before nearly 800 baggage and customer service staff could have walked off their jobs.

A statement from the union says, “the agreement brings long overdue wage increases and improvements to working conditions.”

Affected workers will vote on the deal later this week.

Details of the deal will be provided following ratification.
