ALL THAT JAZZ Flight attendants ratify labour agreement
Posted on 09/24/2015
Jazz Aviation LP, a subsidiary of Chorus Aviation Inc., announced yesterday that its flight attendants, represented by the Canadian Flight Attendant Union (CFAU), have ratified their tentative agreement reached on August 27.
The CFAU represents approximately 820 flight attendants employed at Jazz.
"I'm incredibly pleased with this milestone," said Colin Copp, chief administrative officer at Jazz.
"There was a significant amount of effort put forward by all and I offer my thanks to the union executive, the flight attendant group and the negotiating teams."
The term of the agreement extends to December 31, 2025; consistent with Jazz’s capacity purchase agreement with Air Canada.
The new collective agreement provides long-term labour stability, productivity enhancements and a transition to competitive labour costs.
