days until our Collective Agreement expires, we are preparing, we are united and we will make change.

New Reserve Committee Co-Chairs

Hello everyone!
After many years of our reserve members being able to rely on Wesley Lesosky as the Component Reserve Committee Chairperson, two new co-chairs have been appointed to take over this position, and we would like to introduce ourselves – we are Jesse Matthews and Chanelle Gauthier.
It is a great privilege to be appointed to this position.  We know we have big shoes to fill and we are up for the challenge.
Jesse has been with the company for 2 years now and has been extremely active with the YVR local as their reserve committee chair. Chanelle has been with the company for 6 years, has been a service director for 2 years, and has been on reserve for 5 out of those 6 years. Together we bring to the table union experience, as well as the experience of having been on reserve.
We would like to thank you in advance for letting us help you with your reserve questions and we welcome your emails at!  With Jesse based in the west coast and Chanelle based in the east coast, we will be able to keep up with your inquiries regardless of your Canadian time zone.
This will be a learning experience for both of us and we can’t wait to embark on this journey with you, the membership.
Happy Flying!
Jesse Matthews & Chanelle Gauthier
Co-Chairs, Reserve Committee
