Grievance Update – CHQ-19-29 and CHQ-19-34

CHQ-19-29 – Improper Notification – Long Range Flying Augments (B14, L18, L22A, L22B)
The Union filed grievance, CHQ-19-29 (Click HERE to view) about Air Canada’s Improper Notification of Long Range Flying Augments (B14, L18, L22A, L22B).

This grievance has gone to Level 2, and mediation, and the parties have been trying to resolve the matter through the grievance process, but have not been able to come to a conclusion.

The Union has forwarded this matter to arbitration to address outstanding remedies as a result of this violation and will update the membership once the matter has been resolved.

CHQ-19-34 – Violation of Article L28 (Crew breaks/sleep on TAP A330 aircraft)
The Union filed grievance, CHQ-19-34 (Click HERE to view) about Air Canada Violating Article L28 (Crew breaks/sleep on TAP A33 aircraft)

This grievance has gone to Level 2, and mediation, and the parties have been trying to resolve the matter through the grievance process, but have not been able to come to a conclusion.

The Union has forwarded this matter to arbitration to address outstanding remedies as a result of this violation and will update the membership once the matter has been resolved.  We have also, as of late, reiterated the need to have this issue addressed as our members are working with little or no place to rest, eat or take a moment to themselves.  Our members are to be fresh, pressed and approachable at all times, yet we have no place to take contractual rest periods when operating these aircrafts.  Please continue to document lack of crew rest on A330 flights through a Health and Safety form as well as an email to your Local Union Office.

In Solidarity,

Wesley Lesosky
President, Air Canada Component of CUPE
