MONTREAL (Reuters) – Air Canada’s pilots have agreed to end a decade-long contract framework, opening the door to “full bargaining this summer,” the union representing the carrier’s aviators said on Monday in a note to members seen by Reuters.
Air Canada’s pilots have previously said they are pressing for “historic” gains by narrowing the pay gap with aviators at major U.S. carriers.
Air Canada was not immediately available for comment.
