Meal allowances/entitlements (Articles 7.02.01 and L43)

Dear Mainline Members,

Air Canada is telling members to pay claim acknowledged meal allowances/entitlements because they are not automatically being paid out. Air Canada should be automating all meal allowance/entitlement payouts. Clearly, if Air Canada knows you are entitled to them, why should members need to submit pay claims to be paid out?
