Canadian North Pilots Ratify Tentative Labor Agreement

Nearly 80 Percent Of Ballots Cast Were In Favor Of The Pact

Pilots for Canadian North (CNP) have successfully ratified a tentative agreement, with nearly 80 percent of those who cast ballots voting in favor of the pact. In a news release, ALPA says the deal reflects advances in employment protection for long-term job stability, increases in per diem and pay rate, and quality-of-life improvements. Capt. Chris Kampen, CNP MEC chairman, credits the dedication of the Canadian North pilots and the experience and leadership of ALPA as crucial in finalizing this agreement.

The successful ratification by CNP represents the culmination of over two years of hard work at the negotiating table. The MEC strongly believes the TA reflects the goals of the pilot group. The newly ratified TA is their first collective agreement as ALPA members.

“I want to congratulate the Canadian North flight crewmembers for demonstrating an unwavering dedication toward accomplishing their contract goals,” said Capt. Lee Moak, ALPA’s president. “The pilots are well positioned to implement their newly ratified contract with the full support, resources, and voice of the world’s most powerful pilot union.”

Earlier this year, ALPA’s Executive Board ratified a merger with Canadian North Pilots Association, making Canadian North the ninth pilot group in Canada to join ALPA. The 108 flight crewmembers of Canadian North overwhelmingly voted in support of the merger, which became effective on May 1. In addition to ALPA’s U.S. pilot groups, the pilots of Canadian North join Air Transat, Bearskin Airlines, Calm Air, CanJet, First Air, Jazz, Kelowna Flightcraft, and Wasaya Airways in choosing ALPA representation.
