TORONTO, Feb. 8, 2013 /CNW/ - Today the CAW reached its first tentative agreement with Sunwing Airlines. CAW Local 7378 represents over 150 professional airline pilots at Sunwing.

"We negotiated through a number of very difficult issues at the bargaining table and were able to reach an agreement that we feel meets the needs of our membership," said Captain Dave Matkovich, president of CAW Local 7378. "It was the strength and support of our members, and the tireless work of our bargaining committee that made this tentative agreement possible."

"We will be taking the tentative agreement to our membership for a ratification vote in a series of meetings across the country during the last week of February," stated Matkovich.

Details of the three-year agreement will be released upon ratification.

"The airline sector is incredibly challenging and we've proven many times over that having the backing of a strong union makes a big difference for airline staff, regardless of their profession or job," said Ron Smith, CAW Transportation Director.

Sunwing pilots joined the CAW in January 2012. The CAW represents 11,600 members in the air transportation sector including pilots of Morningstar Air Express, PropAir, Sunwing Airlines, and CargoJet.
