CAW Members Approve Agreement Covering Flight Service Specialists at Nav Canada

TORONTO, Feb. 23, 2012 /CNW/ - Following a lengthy tour of ratification meetings that included visits to many of the 63 airports where CAW Local 2245 members work, Flight Service Specialists have ratified a new agreement with Nav Canada.

CAW Local 2245 represents 750 Flight Service Specialists at 63 airports across Canada, providing essential advisory services to the aviation community. Flight Service Specialists advise pilots on aviation safety issues at airports.

The two year agreement provides wage increases in each year of the deal.

"The high level of attendance and participation at the meetings was truly appreciated by the bargaining committee," said CAW Local 2245 President Derek Yakielashek. "The members' support for their union during these difficult times is encouraging and a strong foundation to build on." 

He stressed the agreement was reached between the two parties without any interference from the federal government.

This marks the third time that a CAW represented group of workers has ratified an agreement with Nav Canada during the last year. CAW Local 5454 represents controllers and CAW Local 1016 represents data specialists at Nav Canada.
