Air Canada pilots bristle at arbitrator-imposed contract
The union that represents 3,000 of Air Canada’s pilots is upset with an arbitrator’s decision to side with the airline in a long-running contract dispute, and vows to continue the legal fight. The pilots got angry about the decision. The union said it has filed a legal challenge of the law in Ontario’s Superior Court of Justice. Also, the pilots say the new deal could scale back up to 1,100 jobs. As a result, even though passengers buy tickets from Air Canada, they will not receive Air Canada flights operated by them.
Ryan’s Opinion :
I think this whole situation is unfortunate, but these are lessons in sustainable management. The airline can not rely on continuous growth for its business plan. However, I am concerned because there is nothing more dangerous than a pilot who is stressed and depressed.
