    Mc Mullen v. Air Canada

    Aveos and Air Canada ex-employees

    Class action against Air Canada in Superior Court:

    This class action seeks to compensate former employees of Air Canada and Aveos for Air Canada’s failure to maintain overhaul and maintenance centers in Montreal, Winnipeg and Mississauga following Aveos’ closure in march 2012.

    Latest news

    Justice Jean-François Michaud of the Superior Court of Quebec authorized the class action in a judgment dated May 15th, 2018. Justice Michaud concluded that Mr. McMullen had demonstrated a serious colour of right and that he can properly represent the class members.

    Justice Michaud has since approved the content of the following notices to members. You can view here the short notice or the long notice.

    Conditions to be part of this class action

    You are a member of this class action if you fit into one of these 2 categories:

    – You are an ex-employee, unionized or not, of Air Canada’s overhaul and maintenance center in Montreal, Mississauga or Winnipeg and you were negatively impacted by Aveos’ closure

    – You are the spouse, common law partner, heir or beneficiary of one of those ex-employees

    What is alleged against Air Canada?

    The class action alleges that Air Canada violated the Air Canada Public Participation Act under which it had the obligation to maintain overhaul and maintenance centers in Montreal, Mississauga and Winnipeg. Both the Quebec Superior Court and the Quebec Court of Appeal recognized that Air Canada had contravened the law. Those judgments were declaratory and no compensation was sought for ex-employees who were negatively impacted

    Apart from compensation for the damages suffered by class members, the class action seeks to obtain punitive damages for Air Canada’s breach to the Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms.

     

    Class proceeding against Aveos former directors in Federal Court:

    By their application for judicial review, Aveos former directors contest the decision of Arbitrator Pierre Flageole rendered on June 7, 2018 which confirmed that they are responsible for compensating some former employees for unpaid wages and other benefits.

    Latest news

    On June 20, 2019, the Honourable Associate Chief Justice of the Federal Court Jocelyne Gagné certified as a defendant class action the judicial review opposing Aveos’ ex-directors to Aveos’ former employees in file T-1290-18.
