Air Canada Bargaining Update

December 5, 2018 at 4:45 PM


As announced on November 26, 2018, Air Canada, along with the financial support of TD Bank, CIBC and Visa Canada, announced that they have completed their due diligence process and they intend to proceed with the purchase of Aimia Canada Inc. This purchase will proceed for shareholder approval at a meeting scheduled on January 8, 2019. The regulatory approval is anticipated later in January 2019.

The Bargaining Committee is seeking the answers to the many questions and concerns that have been brought forward by the membership. We are aware that the members are anxiously awaiting further information, and as we wait, we will continue to present these questions to Air Canada on a regular basis.

At this point in the transition process, we can confirm the following:

  1. An agreement was signed with Air Canada to maintain the two separate bargaining units until January 1, 2026, unless otherwise agreed to by the parties.

  2. Until further notice, Aimia Canada Inc. will remain as the employer to our members at Aeroplan.

  3. In the meantime, the Air Canada Bargaining Committee is working to achieve the best collective agreement for all of our members.

We will continue to provide you with further details as information becomes available. The Bargaining Committee would like to thank you for your continued support and patience.


In Solidarity,

Your Air Canada Bargaining Committee
