Arbitrator favours Air Canada’s final offer to pilots in labour dispute

As I wrote in May, a labour dispute between Air Canada and its pilots led to back-to-work legislation. The federal government imposed binding arbitration and an arbitrator was chosen to deal with the labour dispute.

On July 30, 2012, the federal arbitrator made a decision which ends the dispute in favour of Air Canada: a five-year collective agreement effective until April 2016.

Last month, another federal arbitrator sided with Air Canada in a long-standing labour dispute between the airline and its unionized machinists, imposing the company’s final contract offer, a five-year deal that includes pension changes for any new hires.
