Jazz Aviation's union-represented crew schedulers ratify Labour pact

Canadian carrier Jazz Aviation LP said that its crew scheduling employees represented by trade union Unifor have ratified a tentative agreement which was reached on September 6 2013.

The agreement will be in place for a four-year period. Unifor represents approximately 40 Crew Schedulers employed at Jazz.

Jazz Aviation LP has a history in Canadian aviation with its roots going back to the 1930s. Jazz is wholly owned by Chorus Aviation Inc and continues to generate some of the strongest operational and financial results in the North American aviation industry.

There are two airline divisions operated by Jazz Aviation LP: Air Canada Express and Jazz.

Under a capacity purchase agreement with Air Canada, Jazz provides service to and from lower-density markets as well as higher-density markets at off-peak times throughout Canada and to and from certain destinations in the United States. Under the Jazz brand, the airline offers charters throughout North America with a dedicated fleet of five Bombardier (TSX: BBD-B) aircraft for corporate clients, governments, special interest groups and individuals seeking more convenience.

Jazz also has the ability to offer airline operators services such as ground handling, dispatching, flight load planning, training and consulting.
