WestJet ratifies five-year agreement with AMEs

Ninety-three per cent of the 688-membership Aircraft Maintenance Engineers Association (AMEA) have voted in favour of a five-year agreement with WestJet.

The agreement, which will begin on May 1, 2019, recognizes the value of WestJet AMEs and technicians and their dedication to safety.

The agreement will remain in place until 2024.

“WestJet is pleased at the vote outcome and believes this agreement is beneficial to our hard-working AMEs, while providing long-term sustainability for WestJet and all employees,” said Jeff Martin, WestJet chief operating officer. “I sincerely thank the AMEA for the transparent, fair and open process and for representing WestJet’s AMEs with professionalism.”

The AMEA is a member of the WestJet Employee Association.
