WestJet and the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM), the union representing WestJet load controllers, reached a tentative agreement on the first collective bargaining agreement between the organizations Wednesday night (May 8).

Both parties now await the ratification vote to be put forward to membership.

"WestJet is pleased to have reached a tentative agreement that recognizes the important contributions of our load controllers," said Diederik Pen, President of WestJet Airlines and group chief operating officer, in a statement. 

"They play an integral role in the safety and performance of our operations and this agreement recognizes the talent, dedication and hard work of this collective group."

It's the second resolution reached at WestJet this week. Earlier, a work stoppage was averted after WestJet and the Aircraft Mechanics Fraternal Association (AMFA), the union that represents WestJet aircraft maintenance engineers, announced a tentative agreement on the first collective bargaining agreement between the organizations.
