Tell the Feds to Help Save Air Transport Jobs! -15-May-2015-

Our IAMAW Members in Toronto and Montreal face the loss of their jobs due to “contract flipping”. Air Canada has put their fueling contracts out to tender, and the successful bidders are not IAMAW Certified employers. This means the jobs will be offered at up to $8.00/hour less in wages, and little or no benefits.
The IAM has launched a Labourstart campaign to demand the Federal Minister of Labour act to prevent this loss of jobs. We are asking that you forward this to all members that you have email addresses for. It takes only a minute to complete the form. Thanks in advance.
