The deal is with the Canadian Airline Dispatchers Association that represents the 74 flight dispatchers. The group work in a control center near Pearson International Airport in Toronto. They assist preparations for arrivals and departures.
The deal still needs to be ratified by the dispatchers and the board of Air Canada. Negotiations with unions in Air Canada seem to be going relatively well.
Recently the airline reached agreement with 8,600 mechanics and others. Also on Saturday agreement was concluded with 75 crew schedulers.
