Jan. 28, 2009, Montreal – CAW members at Air Canada have rejected a tentative agreement between their union negotiators and the airline.

The CAW represents 5,000 customer service and sales agents employed by Air Canada.

The deal also provided for CAW members in two contact centres in Vancouver and Montreal to remain employees of Air Canada or shift over to Group Aeroplan, which runs the airline's loyalty-points program.

The current collective agreement remains in effect until May 31, so no immediate impact on service is expected.
