Jazz, pilots' union reach tentative deal Add to ...



Jazz Air Income Fund and the union representing pilots have reached a tentative labour agreement, says the Air Line Pilots Association.



Labour and industry officials said Tuesday that Jazz's deal with the union is a breakthrough that prevents a walkout by 1,500 pilots. The previous contract expired June 30, 2009.

Jazz pilots are scheduled to be asked to ratify the tentative agreement by late next week.

Halifax-based Jazz, which flies on behalf of Air Canada, has yet to sign a new contract with its flight attendants. The Canadian Flight Attendants Union said it hopes to resume efforts within days with federal mediation and conciliation officers to help negotiate a new settlement.
