Failure to Pay Pre-duty Period Ground Duty Credits (Articles 5.08, B5.03.01)

Dear Mainline Members,

Air Canada is failing to pay crew members who are required to report for duty up to thirty (30) minutes prior to any duty period. Air Canada stated that they are having IT issues but have not committed to ensuring proper payment would be forthcoming any time soon. Once again, our members deserve to be paid what they are entitled to.
