At 5:00 pm yesterday, a tentative agreement was reached between NAV Canada and CATCA CAW Local 5454, representing Canada's 2,200 air traffic controllers, two days before the March 31 expiry of the existing contract.
The tentative agreement has been unanimously approved and recommended by the Union's 16 member Contract Committee. Highlights and the full text of the settlement will be released soon, as will details of the cross-country tour and ratification vote.
The Contract Committee wishes to thank all air traffic controllers for their patience and support during these past months of bargaining. As always, it is the members' solidarity and confidence which have allowed us to achieve this settlement.
