The History of the Council of Unions & the Share Trust

The Council of Unions was established to represent the interests of the unionized employees of Air Canada during a turbulent time that included pension insolvency. Leaders from each of Air Canada’s unions – the Air Canada Pilots Association (ACPA); Canadian Airline Dispatchers Association (CALDA); Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) – Air Canada Component; the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAMAW); and Unifor – meet to discuss issues of common concern, including the Share Trust.

The 2009 Share Trust Agreement is a multiparty agreement created during the pension moratorium between Air Canada and its five Unions that governs a block of shares held in a restricted use, single joint trust account.
