Air Transat
Potential disruption looms as talks between Air Transat and CALDA continue

Airline dispatchers at Air Transat represented by the Canadian Airline Dispatchers Association (CALDA) have given their association a 100% strike mandate in their negotiations with Air Transat.

The result of the strike vote was delivered to Air Transat on April 15 after conciliation talks with the assistance of the federal government failed and conciliation ended on April 2.

The 21 day mandatory cooling off period ended April 23. The collective agreement ended on Oct. 31, 2022.

Flights dispatchers are licensed by Transport Canada and prepare the flight plan, board fuel, monitor aircraft systems, monitor weather, deal with in-flight emergencies along with other high-level functions. The flight dispatcher at Air Transat shares responsibility with the pilot-in-command for flight watch and operational control. Both the flight dispatcher and the pilot-in-command share pertinent information with each other to ensure the flight is operated in the safest manner possible. No Air Transat aircraft can depart without the approval of the flight plan by the flight dispatcher.
