Jazz Air reaches a tentative agreement with its pilots

Jazz Air (Air Canada Jazz) (Halifax) and the Air Line Pilots Association Int’l (ALPA), representing more than 1,500 pilots employed by Jazz Air LP (formerly Air Canada Jazz), confirmed that they have signed a Memorandum of Settlement (MOS) for a tentative agreement with Jazz Air management representatives after 13 months of negotiations. The pilots’ collective agreement expired on June 30, 2009.

The MOS forms the basis of a tentative agreement between Jazz pilots and management and establishes the foundation for a fair and equitable work contract. If approved by the Jazz Master Executive Council (MEC), a tentative agreement will be taken to the pilot membership for a final ratification vote in early July. Details of the settlement will not be released until ratification by Jazz pilots is complete.
