Unifor Local 2002 is pleased to advise that we have received the final decision by the Canadian Industrial Relations Board (CIRB) concerning the review application for certification filed by Air Georgian on January 26, 2017.
The applicant (Air Georgian) was seeking reconsideration on the decision of RD 847 on the basis that the decision was flawed.
The CIRB reviewed the various grounds for reconsideration put forth by the applicant and it found that there was no error of law or policy committed by the original panel that cast doubt on the interpretation of the Code. Therefore, Unifor is the legal bargaining agent for the 90 members at Air Georgian in Toronto and Calgary. Unifor now represents the Aircraft Mechanics (AMEs), Supply Chain, Crew Schedulers, Dispatchers and a number of office workers.
Unifor will be preparing to commence bargaining with this employer in the coming months.
Local 2002 would like to welcome these new members into our union and we look forward to working with them.
