Policy Grievance – Dubai – Change to Scheduled Pairing Extension

A policy grievance has been filed regarding the fact that Air Canada changed the duty period limitation extension of the YYZ-DXB-YYZ routing which was already scheduled as LOU 18 for the January 2020 block month, to a LOU 22A extension effective January 11, 2020. This is a violation of the Collective Agreement which very clearly states:

L22.01:  The parties further agree that once cabin personnel are scheduled to operate in any one of the four (4) extensions they cannot be changed to a different extension. 
Example:  If a pairing is scheduled in accordance with an Extension i.e. B14, LOU 18, LOU 22 “A” or “B”, the duty period cannot later be changed to a different extension for any reason.”
