Please review the following bulletin as it relates to Air Canada and the Canadian Emergency Wage Subsidy Program.
The following bulletin #33 speaks to the various mitigation programs in light of the recent lay-off announcement by Air Canada.
In addition to the Deferred Payment Leave Plan (DPLP) provided for in Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) No. 6 of the TMOS Collective Agreement, Air Canada is also offering Special Voluntary Leaves of Absence (SVLOA) and a lackluster retirement incentive they are calling a “Universal Mitigation Program”.
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.
