Late last week, Air Canada announced it would be closing the Hamilton, Ontario, base operations effective March 2019
. Jazz Aviation LP provides regional service for the airline. It had recently returned to Hamilton, in 2016.
The union is extremely disappointed with this decision and are deeply concerned with the impact that this decision will have on our members and their families. There are eight (8) Jazz Customer Sales & Service agents that are currently employed at this base.
The Company advised the Union of its decision to close this base and we are working together to provide our members with additional information about the closure. Your Bargaining Committee will continue to provide you with updates throughout this process.
