We hope to keep you informed about the progress of the ongoing negotiations, with facts, information and genuine communications.
The WestJet pilots play a crucial role in the success of WestJet Airlines. We began negotiations with our airline’s management team in September 2017. After nine months of negotiations, which includes a 60-day federal conciliation period, we are closing the gap on many issues, particularly working conditions, total compensation, and job security. Here’s what you need to know and how you can help.
The WestJet Airlines Master Executive Council represents over 1500 pilots, based in Vancouver, Calgary, and Toronto. Our pilots safely operate an average of 425 flights per day on a fleet comprised of B737NG, B737MAX, and B767-300 aircraft (B787s arriving in 2019). With more than 120 aircraft, our pilots fly into destinations across Canada, United States, Mexico, Caribbean, Central America, and Europe. We are proud to represent the best interests of our pilots and will ensure that WestJet pilots are well positioned for the upcoming growth, and continued career success in step with WestJet’s success.
