Name Brevets

On August 2, 2016, Arbitrator Louisa Davie issued an interim award relating to name brevets. Click HERE to view.  On April 3, 2019, Arbitrator Davie issued an award affirming her earlier decision.  Click HERE to view.

Per the April 3, 2019 award, “[u]nless the parties agree otherwise in their  negotiations for the 2019-2022 collective agreement, the Employer shall, on or before September 1, 2019, provide employees with a text-based position title brevet. The Employer can do so by (a) redesigning the current brevet to include a text-based position title, or (b) designing a new brevet which includes a text-based position title, or (c) designing a text-based position title brevet to be worn together with the first name brevet.”

The effect of the interim award is that Air Canada will maintain three brevet options.

You have the following three options:

  1. Wearing a brevet consisting of a first name only and position title;
  2. Wearing a brevet consisting of an approved first name pseudonym and position title;
  3. Not wearing a brevet.
