Air Canada and airline union Unifor have announced they have reached a tentative agreement on a new contract for five years.

The deal is said to include protections and fair wages for Air Canada workers.

Air Canada president and chief executive officer Calin Rovinescu says the agreement provides the airline with added flexibility to support profitable growth.

“Importantly, it is a “win-win” agreement which acknowledges the contribution of our customer service and sales agents to Air Canada’s success,” Mr Rovinescu said.

Details of the agreement are set to be released following ratification and approval by the Air Canada Board of Directors.

Unifor national president Jerry Dias says the agreement is an important gain for over 4,000 customer service and sales agents.

“We listened closely to what our members wanted in this contract and delivered results,” Mr Dias said.

This deal follows an agreement made in October 2014 with Air Canada’s pilots on collective terms for ten years.

Air Canada serves almost 200 destinations over five continents making it Canada’s largest domestic and international airline.
