To All IAMAW Air Canada Members-TMOS-Finance and Clerical

Bulletin # 32 below will provide an update on the current status pertaining to how Air Canada is treating its employees with respect to not participating in the 12-week extension of the Federal “Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy” program.

The IAM is strongly suggesting that Air Canada needs to step up and maintain a good employer-employee relationship and to show true leadership amid the current Covid-19 pandemic.  To participate is not only good for the employees and their families, but it is also the right thing to do with respect to being the Nation’s flag carrier.  Read the full bulletin, in both official languages here:

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
following when making the decision:
