Air Canada and IAMAW Negotiations Waiting on Arbitrator

Negotiations will re-commence between Air Canada and the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAMAW).

The IAMAW represents 8,600 mechanics, baggage handles and cargo agents employed by Air Canada, and its collective agreement expired on March 31, 2011.

Both parties have agreed to a 10-day negotiation period to begin after the appointment of an arbitrator by the Minister of Labour in accordance with the provisions of the Protecting Air Service Act.

Air Canada and IAMAW will ask that the arbitrator facilitate the negotiations process pursuant to section 31 of the Act that allows for negations to take place.
