TORONTO, Oct. 23, 2012 /CNW/ - Pilots at Cargojet Airways Ltd have joined the CAW - one of Canada's largest and most influential labour unions with nearly 200,000 members across the country. With the support of over 85 per cent of the pilots, the CAW was recently certified by the Canada Industrial Relations Board.
CAW Director of Transportation Ron Smith commended the 65 new members at Cargojet Airways Ltd. for their resolve to bring positive changes to their workplace by unionizing and having the ability to bargain a legally binding collective agreement.
"The airline pilots at Cargojet are a great addition to the transportation section of CAW. We now represent the pilots at two of the largest cargo airlines in Canada - Cargojet and Morningstar Air Express, as well as the pilots at Sunwing Airlines."
The CAW represents over 11,600 air transportation workers across Canada.
