AIR CANADA OVER “ABANDONMENT OF WORKERS”

International Association Of  Machinists and Aerospace Workers

MACHINISTS UNION CALLS OUT AIR CANADA OVER “ABANDONMENT OF WORKERS”

May 19, 2020 — For Immediate Release.

“Air Canada needs to come to the table and maintain its employees on the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS) program.” This is the message from General Vice President Stan Pickthall, of Air Canada’s largest Union.

As the Union representing over 10,000 Union members at Air Canada, the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAMAW), is calling out the corporation for its abandonment of workers during the ongoing Covid-19 crisis and pandemic.

Pickthall added: “It is beyond an embarrassment for Air Canada to layoff more than half of its employees at a time when those employees need the Company the most. This is shameful behaviour from a corporation that owes its very existence to the hard work and dedication of employees from the ramp to the maintenance bays to the cabins and cockpit. We are asking them to continue the CEWS program – which is being subsidized by Federal funding, so the airline doesn’t even have to pay for it.”

The Union condemned this weekend’s announcement by Air Canada that they would be laying off 20,000 workers, many of whom are members of the IAMAW and other Unions.

In April, Air Canada agreed to participate in the Federal Wage Subsidy program, which provides for 75% of wages to a maximum of $847 per week. However, when the Federal government recently extended the program for another 12 weeks, Air Canada backed out.

Fred Hospes, President and Directing Chairperson of the IAMAW’s Air Transportation District, was equally disappointed. “We join other Unions who are demanding more from Air Canada,” Said Hospes. “We say that it is not too late for Air Canada to stand alongside its employees and work together on rebuilding this industry.”

Pensioners Deserve Super-priority Status

As Canada starts to relax restrictions, and as people hope to return to work, many are finding there is no work to return to. Companies across the country are or could be seeking creditor protection.

Workers and pensioners must be first in line first in line when it comes to paying creditors after a company files for bankruptcy.

Please follow the link and send a letter to your elected representatives.

The feds need to protect pensions

Le fédéral doit protéger les retraites


The financial impact of COVID-19 is huge and we’ve seen what can sometimes happen when companies close: Workers are left holding the bag. The federal government needs to be sure companies can’t walk away with people’s pensions. If you agree, please take action. Write to the government now using this easy tool. If enough of us speak up, the feds will have to act.

Workers and pensioners deserve super-priority status. That means they are first in line when it comes to paying creditors after a company files for bankruptcy. This is what Canada’s unions have long been saying.
