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.

    I realize that you probably do not find the flight attendants to be of importance, thus the reason nothing is ever posted about them, but they reached a tentative agreement on June 29th.

    Thank you – all news is welcome. The report concerning the pilots comes from a press release.

    Quite the contrary, we have heavily reported on the BA cabin crew (FA) strike. We gather our news from press releases, media reports, and contributions (like yours) from our readers. Thanks again for your help.
