In our June/July issue, we celebrate bizav with a visit to Sunwest Aviation in Calgary. We also profile Flightdeck Solutions, discuss northern aviation priorities, and remember the Dash 7. Plus: RCAF retention challenges.
WestJet announced on May 18 that WestJet flight dispatchers, represented by the Canadian Airline Dispatchers Association (CALDA), voted 90 per cent in favour of a three-year agreement. The vote does not include WestJet Encore.
The agreement starts May 18, 2019 and expires May 18, 2022.
“This agreement is beneficial for the long-term sustainability of WestJet, WestJet Dispatchers and our WestJetters,” said Jeff Martin, WestJet chief operations officer. “We thank our employees for their collaboration and openness to reaching an agreement.”
“This is a positive step in the right direction and a testament to WestJetters working together,” said Justin Jones, WestJet CALDA chair.
