Air Canada Pilots Union and North American Union ALPA in Favour of Merger

Reuters reports that the largest air line pilots’ union in the world, the North American-wide Air Line Pilots Association, or ALPA, which represents more than 67,000 pilots at 39 U.S. and Canadian airlines, and the Air Canada Pilots Association, representing 4500 AC pilots, has agreed in principle to a merger.

It will now go to a vote of pilot members, union execs and councils.

The move comes as pilots across the continent push for - and are beginning to receive - much richer contracts as travel recovery surges and pilot shortages remain.
