Unifor 2002 Jazz crew schedulers have voted 100 % to ratify a four-year Memorandum of Settlement (MOS) in Halifax, with 85 % voter turnout.

“This agreement provides a sigh of relief to our members working in the airline industry,” said Jerry Dias, Unifor National President. “The bargaining team needs to be applauded for never wavering on their principles and negotiating the best collective agreement for their membership.”

The MOS will be incorporated into the current Collective Agreement.

“This agreement with Jazz Aviation LP is positive news for Unifor members, particularly at a time when Canada’s aviation sector continues to struggle in the shadow of ongoing travel restrictions,” said Don Ross, Unifor Local 2002 Interim President. “Congratulations to our Jazz Crew Scheduling membership and bargaining team for securing this agreement and providing a positive path forward for our sector.”

The term of the new agreement is effective from July 1, 2021, until June 30, 2025.

Unifor 2002 members in this unit assign flying schedules for both pilot and flight attendants’ crews for Jazz flights. They also monitor crew movements on a daily basis and reroute crews as needed based on operational requirements.
