Workers who did the same work should receive adequate compensation, and this agreement is a way to eliminate two-tier wage structures across the industry,” said Euila Leonard, President of Unifor Local in 2002. The five-year collective agreement provides for wage increases, benefits, improved provisions for work engagement and a better part-time holiday language. Any public stimulus package must invalidate all conditions of free trade and investment agreements that prohibit governments from obtaining equipment and services that Canadian businesses place on others, as governments in a state of emergency are exempt from these clauses. We need to maximize the long-term value of government stimulus plans by ensuring that as many Canadians as possible benefit from them. Please do not miss the registration again for home work.

Unifor Local 2002 members working for Aeroplan voted for a new collective agreement… Message from the Unifor Local 2002 Elections Committee Love Unifor Local 2002 members, No one could have foreseen the devastating effects that COVID-19 would have on the global aviation industry, let alone our daily lives. For many of us, the continuing economic impact near us has affected our jobs and our families. Many of our members are in a state of redundancy, while several units are completely closed in our restaurant, so many of us are thinking about what the future will bring us. In other cases, the pandemic has resulted in business reductions in our workplaces, resulting in reduced working hours and wages. With the pandemic rapidly sweeping across Canada, Unifor National (Local`s governing body 2002) extended the current mandate of the Local Executive Board in 2002. This was the right thing to do in the midst of the unfolding global crisis. Now, months later, we are still not unscathed from the pandemic.
Many of our members remain unemployed, the economy is gradually recovering and COVID-19 remains a serious health threat. However, we see signs that Canada is flattening the curve and that COVID-19 cases are fading in many provinces.
