YYZ Issue “Metering”

The Union has been in discussions with both Air Canada and Air Canada Rouge in regards to the “metering” issues in Toronto.  We have sought immediate ground duty credits for Rouge members, duty period to be applicable to these delays, and no loss of pay if a member has their minimum rest delayed due to this.  We appreciate Air Canada and Air Canada Rouge do not manage Customs and Immigration; however, they are our employer, and they are the ones that need to move this issue forward and have it addressed.  The Company has been actively engaged with your Union on this and we will be meeting early next week.  It is a matter of time before we see an escalation in unruly passengers and further health and safety concerns.  The reports coming in are telling of what you are dealing with, and no one is ok with it.  Please continue to send reports in through the following link Metering Complaint – AC Component.

In solidarity,
