After multiple date hearings and almost two (2) years challenging this matter, it has finally concluded. On May 11th, 2023, Arbitrator Vince Ready rendered his decision and unfortunately dismissed the Union’s grievance. Any member employed with Air Canada, who filed an individual grievance based upon the employer’s policy or who is part of the national grievance, will be receiving a letter in the coming weeks that advises of their grievance dismissal. Any member who has an accommodation grievance based upon the employer’s policy will be proceeding to an expedited format of arbitration, where an arbitrator will render a decision individually on the merits of those accommodation denials.

District Bulletin 16 – AIR CANADA – TMOS OFF-DUTY STATUS GRIEVANCE UPDATE

Your Union filed a grievance challenging the employer’s misuse of Article 20.14 and that grievance was upheld at Arbitration in late 2021. Subsequently, Air Canada brought that decision for Judicial Review. In September 2022, the review panel dismissed the company’s application and costs were awarded to the Union.
Since that time District Lodge 140 has followed up with the company ad nauseam. The list of affected Members has been vetted and we have been advised sent to Payroll for processing. Read Bulletin here…
