Machinists Continue to Grow at Trudeau Airport

For Immediate Release

Montréal, QC – Twenty employees of Gestion-Air have turned to the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers for workplace representation.

“These employees realized after a period of time that their demands to their employer through their employee committee had no real results,” explained IAMAW District 140 Organizer Robert Savoie. “We had been talking with them for more than a year and they knew they need help in solving their workplace issues, so they turned to us.”

The new members provide aircraft towing services for Jazz aircraft at Pierre – Elliot Trudeau International airport.

IAMAW, among the largest industrial trade unions in North America, represents more than 700,000 active and retired members, and administers more than 5,000 contracts in transportation, woodworking, aerospace, manufacturing and defense related industries.
