Mitigation Awards & Layoff Notices

The Company completed the mitigation process and sent out the resulting layoff notices last night. Please check your Air Canada emails. The results are as follows:

Resignation 7 Mainline (all inactive)
3-month RBP 115 Mainline, 15 Rouge
3-month SPLOA 80 Mainline, 0 Rouge

Following the Mitigation Program, the resulting layoff was 601 Active Mainline Members and 87 Active Rouge Members. Layoff Notices were sent to your Air Canada email. We encourage you to reference the layoff notice you received for any questions regarding the layoff process.

Please be mindful that the numbers quoted above refer to active members, whereas the seniority list also includes inactive members. The most junior member to remain active at mainline has seniority #14410, which does mean this round of layoffs did not go as high as the June 2020 layoffs. The most junior member to remain active at Rouge has seniority #19900.

For those of you awarded an RBP, please be mindful that bidding closes tomorrow morning, January 21, 2021, so you may wish to adjust your bid based on your reduced blocking window.

We know that this news is going to have a profound impact on the lives of those that were laid off. What affects one of us affects us all. Your Union will continue to be here for you.  We will get through this together and are continually available. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you are in need.

In solidarity,
