Another industry-leading agreement for IAM Local Lodge 2309

The members of IAM Local Lodge 2309 working for Air Transat Crew and Air Transat Station Management have now agreed upon a new collective agreement which expires July 31 2027.

“This is one of industry-leading wage increases for 2023, which ranges from 12% up to 20% in the first year and from 26% to 35% in 4 years,” said Peter Tsoukalas, General Chairperson for IMA District 140. “Furthermore, the staff of 63 is previewed to grow to 100.”

The Negotiating committee consisted of Maud Laplante, Sylvie Audet, Marie-Pierre Chapleau and Tsoukalas. Highlights of the new agreement are:

  • A requirement that the new Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) be bilingual and more user-friendly for the members.
  • A reduced wage scale (it now takes 8 years to get to the top rate instead of 11)
  • Addition and acceleration of paid vacation days, statutory holidays and paid personal days by focusing on our members work-life balance.
  • Improved language on 28 out of 32 articles which adds seniority protection and clarification on many points of interpretations
  • Introduction of “telework” which allows our members to work remotely.
  • Introduction of a Voluntary Pre-Retirement Work Program which allows flexibility and retains experienced workers.
