Night/Special Dinners (Article 7.02.01)

Dear Mainline Members,

Air Canada has still not implemented an automated process to ensure members are paid out their contractual night/special dinner entitlements. In addition, Air Canada has not addressed how members can be paid out their owed night/special dinner entitlements prior to implementing a manual process to do so as of the January 2024 block month. This allowance is specific to night dinners you would be receiving when operating pairings that comply with the all night flight pairing definition in B8.18 (departures between 0300-0530 and arrivals between 0300-0430).

The Union has filed a policy grievance. Click HERE to view the grievance form.

If you have been affected by this matter, we ask that you send an email to, and ensure to include the grievance number CHQ-24-31 in the subject line.

In Solidarity,

Wesley Lesosky
President, Air Canada Component of CUPE
