WestJet Encore announced today its pilots have voted in favour of a new agreement with 93 per cent of eligible pilots voting.

The tentative agreement was negotiated between WestJet Encore and the WestJet Pilots’ Association (WJPA), the association representing its pilots. Voting on the agreement began on December 12, 2015 and ended December 20, 2015.

Nearly 275 WestJet Encore pilots are represented by the WJPA, a subgroup of WestJet’s Proactive Communication Team (PACT), the wholly-elected employee association representing WestJet’s more than 11,000 employees. This is the first ratified agreement between WestJet and its Encore pilots.

“We are pleased to reach a successful conclusion to this interest-focused negotiation process,” said Ferio Pugliese, President, WestJet Encore. “The agreement reflects the diligent efforts of our teams and I thank WJPA, the WestJet Encore negotiating team and the Encore leadership team for their work on this agreement and genuine commitment to our business and our people.”

The new agreement begins January 1, 2016 and expires on December 31, 2020.
