The federal arbitrator appointed to the pension dispute between Air Canada and the Canadian Auto Workers (CAW) has been granted an extension. The CAW ended to a three-day strike at Air Canada in June after reaching a new labour agreement but was unable to agree on management’s efforts to move new hires into a defined contribution pension plan rather than the existing defined benefit program. The matter was put out for arbitration and a decision was expected by Aug. 19. But this has now been extended to the end of the month or shortly after Labour Day.
