Union warns of Air Canada maintenance outsourcing by Aeroman in El Salvador

Wednesday, March 9, 2011

Union leaders are warning that Air Canada is on a course to divert aircraft maintenance work to lower-cost plants in the United States and El Salvador.

The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers says hundreds of Canadian jobs are at risk of being transferred to foreign aircraft repair companies over a 10-year period, if Air Canada’s heavy maintenance contract is allowed to expire in mid-2013.

The union is especially concerned about expansion plans by Aveos Fleet Performance’s Aeroman division in San Salvador.
