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

The Weekly Dispatch – Social Media

We have seen an increase in discipline for some of our members who have made posts on social media sites.  We have noted that even when a member posted on the Facebook discussion board or the service director discussion board that it trickled down to Air Canada. Whether we like it or not, some of our colleagues are passing this information on to the employer.  They take great issue with anything that may in their view discredit Air Canada or damage their brand. We have assertively defended the members who were impacted by this.  We do not want to limit your right to free speech on union matters, however we felt it was important to advise you that when you think a Facebook closed group is private, that is sadly and simply not the case.
