Bargaining 2025 Rouge and Mainline

We have received emails and enquiries about the design of the 2025 Air Canada Component Bargaining Survey. Some of our member enquiries are about why we have combined the priorities of Mainline and Rouge. The reality is that we are ONE bargaining unit with ONE Collective Agreement. Our collective priorities have been consistently identified by you with a focus on pay increases, expenses, pay for all work performed, pensions, crew rest and benefits. Our survey will solidify these priorities and give us a map forward. There are a myriad of other Collective Agreement articles that require improvements. This includes both Rouge and Mainline. Our goal is to raise the bar for all members and for US. Together we will prevail. When we are unified as one cohesive bargaining unit, we will become a force to be reckoned with. At this point in our history, we must come together side by side, both Mainline and Rouge colleagues.

To ensure that the optimum number of members were able to fill out the survey we extended the deadline to June 20, 2024, at 23:59 EDT.  That deadline is fast approaching, so if you haven’t already done so, please make sure that you take the time to complete the bargaining survey.

If you still have not received the survey link, please email You will receive a notification when the link is sent. Ensure you include your Name, Email, Base, Employee Number and Airline. Having all of this information will help to expedite the process.

As we previously advised, the survey is only one of the consultations we will be having with members in the coming months.  There are also road shows planned:

– YVR – July 8, 2024 from 10:00h to 12:00h PT (Sheraton Wall Center)

– YUL – July 16, 2024 from 10:00h to 13:00h ET (Marriott Airport Hotel In Terminal)

– YYZ – July 23, 2024 from 10:00h to 13:00h ET (Sheraton Gateway Hotel – O’Hare Room, YYZ Airport, Terminal 3) *New Location*

– YYC – July 30, 2024 from 10:00h to 12:00h MT (YYC Airport Silver Dart Meeting Room)

These road shows can be attended by any member, from any base and will be done in person.

In solidarity,

Your Bargaining Committee
