The details of the 2019 IAMAW Scholarship Competition have been announced. Please take a look at the following bulletin for all the information:
Dear Brothers and Sisters:
Air Canada is asking eligible retirees whether they will give up their life insurance and health benefits, both of which were guaranteed for life, for a one time cash payment for life insurance, and a health care spending account of $450 yearly for the retiree, and another $450 for eligible dependents for a total maximum of $900 for health benefits. The decision whether to take the Voluntary Buyout Program is a personal one, and we cannot make a recommendation about what to do. However, we suggest that our members consider the

“On Friday, August 10, 2018 Air Canada announced to their employees that they would be creating a new wholly owned subsidiary, Air Canada Life Insurance Company (ACLI).
