Pascan Aviation’s flight crew, recently affiliated with a union, will be paid upon arrival at the airport and not according to flight duration, a first in Canada.
The company’s cruise employees, who have been regular since Wednesday, voted unanimously on the first three-year collective agreement that would see a 40% increase in pay to 52%.
This significant increase in compensation is due to the fact that the parties negotiated so that the principle of time in service and not time in flight is now applied.
In aviation, flight attendants are paid only from the start of the aircraft’s engines and their extinction at the destination.
At Pascan, they will be paid as soon as they arrive at the airport, a first of its kind in Canada.
We are very proud of this agreement. It is the first in Canada. In the context of the current labor shortage, Paskan is an ideal employer who will be able to retain their employees, among other things, through the diversity of schedules, “
Bascan Air is one of the airlines that serve the regions of Quebec. It hires about twenty flight attendants.
