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

Scope Violation CHQ-22-73

scope clause is part of a contract between a major airline and a trade union.  The importance of a scope clause in a Collective Agreement cannot be understated as its purpose is to protect bargaining unit work.  Article 2 of the Collective Agreement outlines specific details of our scope agreement.

It has recently come to the Union’s attention that Air Canada is violating our scope clause, specifically, Article by operating more than 30 narrow body aircraft at Air Canada rouge.

The purpose of Article 2.04.05 is to limit the amount of aircraft that can be operated at rouge.  Click here (CHQ-22-73) to see the grievance form.

Please let us know if you have any questions about the above noted matter.

In Solidarity,

Wesley Lesosky
President, Air Canada Component of CUPE
