These seminars are intended to educate our members in the language of our Collective Agreement as it relates to block rules and some of the contract intricacies.

We know that there are members who have asked how this language applies in simple terms. This we hope will give them a deeper knowledge and understanding of contract language applications so that they can address Crew Scheduling or management and know their rights under the CA.

If there is time at the end of each presentation, we will be able to take questions related to the materials presented.  As always, any questions or concerns can be emailed directly to your local union representatives for follow up.

We will be serving coffee and tea and pastries at each session. In order to plan for the number of attendees we ask that members who will be attending fill out the form in the link below:

We are very excited about this initiative and hope that it sheds some light on contract language and provides you with the confidence required to assert your rights.

In solidarity,
