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

Rouge Final Pay

(This applies to Air Canada Rouge only)
We want to thank those who brought forward concerns regarding your final pay/severance cheques and the abnormally high income tax taken off.  As you know, your Union brought these concerns forward to Payroll and Rouge Management immediately.   After much back and forth, the Union has been advised that there was indeed an issue with Ceridian’s programming of this pay. Not all employees were impacted, but 928 employees were. To get this resolved quickly, Payroll has informed us that they have been working with Ceridian to have the pay file reprocessed, so those who were overtaxed can have their final pay taxes adjusted. This payment will be made on Friday July 23rd to those affected.

We appreciate your patience while we investigated this matter.  While it is not always easy getting full answers, we are happy to see this resolved.  Our intention throughout this process has always been to provide you with the answers you deserve.

We want to strongly reiterate that we were able to act on this quickly and efficiently due to the reports you submitted to the Local Union office as well as copying the Union on the emails sent to the Company.  The Union is only as strong as your voice, and this was a true show of solidarity enabling the Union to push forward with a re-run.

In Solidarity,

Wesley Lesosky
