"We are pleased to reach a successful conclusion to this interest-focused negotiation process," said Ferio Pugliese, president of 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,” he added.
