Seniority List Update – March 5, 2021 / Mise à jour de la liste d’ancienneté – 5 mars 2021

Please see this month’s Seniority List Update. As previously mentioned, we will resume more regular updates when recalls resume, hopefully in the near future.

Updated Seniority List
Your Union has updated the seniority list with the most recent layoffs and retirements using information provided by Air Canada. We have added Employee numbers to the list based on membership feedback. The list is still based on your 2020 Master Cabin Personnel Seniority number, as the 2021 Seniority numbers are not final until the process outlined in Article 16.08 is complete.

*** Please note there may be errors or omissions, if you are aware of any please contact your union. You will also note that those members on leaves but senior enough to avoid layoff will be coded as Active ***

Retirements 
In addition, please see the current retirement numbers below.  You can also view full details over the past three years by clicking HERE.

Layoff Notices – Cancellation of 129 Layoff Notices

The Company has advised the Union that they are in a position to rescind 129 layoff notices that were to take effect March 2, 2021. The cancellations of these layoffs will occur in seniority order and individuals will receive notice in their Air Canada emails.

Members whose layoff has been cancelled will fall into one of the four categories below:

  1. Members who were already on a mitigation SPLOA or RBP will have their layoff cancelled and return to their mitigation SPLOA or RBP.
  2. Members who bid on a mitigation SPLOA or RBP during the latest mitigation award will have their layoff cancelled and be awarded the mitigation option that they bid on.
  3. Members who were on a COVID-19 leave or other leave will have their layoff cancelled and remain on their respective leave.
  4. Members who otherwise would have been active for March 2021 will have their layoff cancelled and will receive information from Crew Planning on how to bid for a pre-built reserve block for the March 2021 block month.

For those members who have had their layoff cancelled you are also now eligible to be awarded vacation during the second bid period which closes on March 2, 2021 at 0800 EST.

As a result of these cancellations, the most junior member to remain active for March 2021 has seniority #10980, based on the posted 2020 Seniority Numbers on aeronet.

UPDATE – The Service Canada information session regarding the Employment Insurance (EI) Program on Thursday, February 18th is now FULL.  Login information has already been sent out to those that have secured one of the available spots.  If you did not receive an email with the login information it unfortunately means that all of the spots were filled before we received your email.

There are still some spots left for the English session on Monday, February 22nd at 12pm EST.  The session will cover how to sign up for EI as well as a Q & A period and will be 1 hour in length.

To register for the February 22nd English session, please email contact@accomponent.ca with your full name, your base, and your employee number.  This session is open to all members, at all bases, of both Mainline and Rouge.

The session will be held via Zoom.  Login information will be sent to those who have registered.  There is a maximum of 125 participants and the spots will be given out on a first come, first served basis.

Additional Service Canada Information Sessions

Due to the overwhelming desire from many members to join these sessions, Service Canada has scheduled two additional English information sessions regarding the Employment Insurance (EI) Program.  These sessions will cover how to sign up for EI as well as a Q & A period.  Each session will be 1 hour in length.

To register for one of the sessions please email contact@accomponent.ca with your full name, your base, your employee number, and the date of the session you want to attend.  The schedule is listed below.  These sessions are open to all members, at all bases, of both Mainline and Rouge.

To allow as many members as possible to benefit from these sessions, if you have already registered for one of the previous sessions, you will be unable to register for these additional dates.

These sessions will be held via Zoom.  Login information for each session will be sent to those who have registered. There is a maximum of 125 participants per session and the spots will be given out on a first come, first serve basis.

Mitigation Awards & Layoff Notices

The Company has completed the mitigation process and will send out the resulting layoff notices. Please check your Air Canada emails. The results for this round of mitigations are as follows:

Resignation/Retirement  29 Mainline
2-month RBP  36 Mainline
2-month SPLOA  23 Mainline

Following the Mitigation Program, the resulting layoff was 804 Mainline Members. Layoff Notices will be sent to your Air Canada email. We encourage you to reference the layoff notice you receive for any questions regarding the layoff process, benefits, and the returning of your company issued items.

Please be mindful that the numbers quoted above refer to active and inactive members. The most junior member to remain active at mainline has seniority #10315 (2020 Seniority Number).

For those of you awarded an RBP, please be mindful that bidding closes on Wednesday night, so you may wish to adjust your bid based on your reduced blocking window.

Each round of layoffs has been difficult to process and the results of this round are especially so as our active membership has reached a record low, both in numbers and moral.  We are hopeful these layoffs will be temporary, but that does not minimize the impact on those of you affected. Your Union will continue to be here for you.  Please do not hesitate to reach out if you are in need.
