Pilots at Sunwing Airlines ratified a new collective agreement.
The 380 flight crew members affected by the deal are represented by Unifor Local 7378.
Union members are locating at bases in Halifax, Quebec City, Montreal, Toronto, Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver as well as in various locations in Europe.
According to Joel Fournier, the union’s director of transportation, the agreement exceeds parity with other pilot groups in the industry.
“We are pleased with having bargained a settlement that moves our members forward and recognizes the important role they play in the success of the business,” Fournier said.
The union reported the agreement is expected to contribute to the improvement of labour relations between the employer and pilots.
