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:
- Members who were already on a mitigation SPLOA or RBP will have their layoff cancelled and return to their mitigation SPLOA or RBP.
- 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.
- Members who were on a COVID-19 leave or other leave will have their layoff cancelled and remain on their respective leave.
- 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.
