The operation of many airlines offers an essential service to the municipalities of the North. These airlines must continue to operate, even though the demand for their passenger services has decreased significantly. Any support plan must pay particular attention to these companies and ensure that they can continue to provide the wages and benefits provided for in collective agreements and employment contracts. Please do not miss the new application for working from home. It should be in your Aeronet mailbox. The Cews will not be renewed, so every one of you who is there must apply if you want to work from home. We have repeatedly asked the company to increase the number of agents WFH has, but has not yet reached an agreement. Dead line is Friday, May 29. Unifor Local 2002 honours Pink Shirt Day and supports the pioneering work of young people who have taken collective action against bullying. Pink Shirt Day began in 2007 in Berwick, Nova Scotia, when David Shepherd, Travis Price and a large group of students decided to defend their peer, who had been harassed for wearing a pink shirt. As a show of solidarity, she and many students showed up at school the next day in pink shirts. The five-year collective agreement includes wage increases, social benefits, improved work engagement provisions and a greater language of part-time leave. Unifor Local 2002 receives applications for the position of Aeroplan Vancouver-EAP representative.
This position is a position negotiated in the collective agreement between Unifor Local 2002 and Aeroplan. The EAP program offers professional follow-up to people looking for support in case of difficulties they may face. Unifor Local 2002 members, who work for Aeroplan, voted in favour of a new collective agreement. TORONTO – Approximately 400 Aeroplan employees have ratified a collective agreement that standardizes salaries for employees in the newly acquired loyalty program. Investments in capital goods and machinery are subject to local economic development criteria, including national content of materials, content of work and preferential local recruitment agreements (e.g. B social benefit agreements). “Congratulations to the Aeroplan members and the bargaining committee for maintaining their determination to reach a fair agreement that reflects the needs and level of qualification of our members. Workers who do the same work should be adequately remunerated and this agreement is a way to eliminate two-tier wage structures across the industry,” said Euila Leonard, President of Unifor Local 2002. Unifor members who work at Aeroplan have ratified a collective termination agreement that shows that low wages are not a necessary feature of working in the service sector.
Any public economic recovery plan must lift all conditions set out in free trade and investment agreements that prohibit governments from procuring equipment and services that put Canadian businesses ahead of others, with governments exempted from these clauses during the state of emergency. We need to maximize the long-term value of government incentives by ensuring that as many Canadians as possible will benefit from them. According to the previous contract, employees hired after 2016 were paid less. These members will see an increase in compensation of approximately 60% over the course of the collective agreement. Message from Unifor Local 2002 Elections Committee Liebe Unifor Local 2002 Members, no one could have predicted the devastating impact of COVID-19 on the global aviation industry, let alone on our daily lives. For many of us, the persistent economic impact has affected the proximity of home and influenced our jobs and families. Many of our members are on layoffs, while several units are completely closed inside our restaurant, so many of us have to think about what the future will bring us. In other cases, the pandemic has led to reductions in exploitation in our workplaces, resulting in reduced working hours and wages. When the pandemic quickly swept across Canada, Unifor National (Local 2002 Board of Directors) postponed the current mandate of the Local Executive Board to 2002. . . .
