Air Canada employees can't get no respect: survey

Employee morale low among airliners' union employees

Employee morale is suffering at Air Canada, according to a union survey.

The survey, conducted by the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, found that union members do not feel that Air Canada management supports them, communicates truthfully with them nor treats them with dignity or respect.

The overall findings of the survey of more than 1,300 union members, suggest employees consider themselves to be professionals who are proud of their work and want to do a good job.

However, the survey also found that these same workers are frustrated and discouraged from working in an environment that appears to have negative employee relations.

The findings show low levels of perceived support by and trust in Air Canada management and local supervisors, low levels of emotional commitment to Air Canada and strong feelings of injustice in the workplace.
