Policy Grievance – Flow Through – Rate of Pay Discrepancy

The Union has filed Policy Grievance CHQ-20-10.  Click HERE to view.

This Policy Grievance addresses the Company’s differential pay scale system for Mainline members who have undergone “flow-through” from Rouge.  With the enhanced wage equity protections introduced by Bill C-86, and now enshrined in the Canada Labour Code, it is the Union’s position that different pay rates for members with the same seniority amount to a breach of the Code. 

We understand that this information has been a long time coming, and we sincerely thank members for their patience on this particular grievance.  We wanted to be certain of the merits and legal arguments in support of this issue.  Having had time to review fully with legal counsel, we are confident in our position.  We will keep you updated, as always.

In Solidarity,

Wesley Lesosky
President, Air Canada Component of CUPE
