Tri­bunal to re­visit Air Canada re­tire­ment age is­sue

Cape Breton Post - - Business -

TORONTO - The Cana­dian Hu­man Rights Tri­bunal will be re­vis­it­ing the is­sue of whether Air Canada was wrong to force some pi­lots to re­tire at age 60. A de­ci­sion pub­licly re­leased on Fri­day says the tri­bunal will hold another hear­ing to de­ter­mine whether the air­line had the right to force 45 pi­lots to re­tire at an age it deemed to be the in­dus­try stan­dard. The de­ci­sion says the case orig­i­nally had 97 com­plainants, but 52 of them will not have their re­tire­ment age scru­ti­nized by the tri­bunal. The is­sue of re­tire­ment age for Air Canada pi­lots has come up both at the tri­bunal and in fed­eral court numer­ous times in the past decade.
