Air Canada’s pilots are feeling sky-high.
They’ve just signed a 10-year contract.
The airline calls it a landmark deal – that gives the company the ability to use mediation or arbitration – to resolve disputes.
Canada’s largest airline also says the contract will provide greater long-term cost certainty.
The pilots’ union says its 3,000 members voted 84 per cent in favour – and union president Captain Craig Blandford says the agreement provides pilots with “stable and secure employment, improved career progression, fair compensation and the opportunity to gain a better share of our airline’s financial success.”
