Canada Needs a Plan
The COVID-19 pandemic continues to keep global aircraft fleets grounded, sending Canada’s aviation sector into a tailspin. On this grim, one year anniversary of the pandemic, the federal government has not implemented any industry-wide measures to protect aviation workers as thousands are laid off who are directly or in-directly connected, whether they are airline or airport workers, aviation support services workers, paramedics, workers in the hospitality or Food services sector. Canada needs a plan to ensure the aviation industry is able to weather this storm and come out the other side intact.

Petition to Save Canadian Aviation
We urge that the Local 2002 Unifor members to act now and call on all Members of Parliament to immediately implement Unifor’s National recovery plan for Canada’s Aviation sector to protect thousands of workers in this critical industry.

Any recovery strategy must focus on three main pillars:
- An industry-specific corporate support package that ensures benefits flow through workers and communities.
- An updated approach to border controls that is rigorous, safe and reflects scientific evidence; and
- Continued government support programs for furloughed employees until recovery is secured.
Unifor has put forward a document entitled: "Planning for a Stronger and More Resilient Future, A National Aviation Recovery Plan for Canada’s Aviation Industry" which explains the three main pillars identified above.

Build Back Better
Last November, Unifor sent a letter to the Prime Minister's Office notifying that Unifor is prepared to work together with hotel employers, industry groups, the broader labour movement, provincial and federal governments, Indigenous communities, representatives from other hard-hit sectors, and other stakeholders, to build a comprehensive, strategic, and inclusive recovery plan for the hospitality sector. Canada needs a Build Back Better plan which leaves no sector behind when we come out of this pandemic.
