Agreement covers employees in Vancouver and Victoria,B.C.

Published on : Thursday, February 14, 2013

Horizon Air passenger service agents in Vancouver and Victoria, B.C., who are represented by the Canadian Auto Workers, have ratified a new three-year contract. All of the 44 agents at the two airports who participated in the ratification vote approved the contract. “The negotiating teams worked hard to achieve an agreement that we thought worked well for both CAW members and the company, and we’re glad our employees agreed,” said Chris Lewless, Horizon Air’s managing director of people and labor relations. “The fact that the new contract was negotiated and ratified before the current agreement expired in mid-February reflects the good relationship we strive to maintain with our employees.” Horizon Air, a subsidiary of Alaska Air Group, operates its flights under the brand name Alaska Airlines and serves 40 destinations in the United States, Canada and Mexico, including five cities in British Columbia and Alberta. Horizon operated 91 percent of its flights on time in 2012, ranking second among all airlines in North America. “Our membership understands the competitive realities of our industry. We’re proud to be part of the operations in Vancouver and Victoria, and we look forward to helping keep Alaska and Horizon at the top of the industry,” said Paul Grewal, CAW chief shop steward for Horizon agents at the two airports Source:-Alaskas Airlines
