HALIFAX - Jazz Air LP (TSX:JAZ.UN) said Tuesday that it has reached a new tentative labour deal with the union representing its customer service agents and aircraft services employees.
The workers, represented by the Canadian Auto Workers Local 2002, voted to reject an earlier settlement.
The revised agreement, reached after talks with a federal conciliations officer, must be voted on by about 950 union members.
Details of the agreement between the union and Air Canada's regional partner were not immediately available.
The union said details of the amended settlement would be released at ratification meetings scheduled to start Friday.
"We were very clear with the employer that unless there were changes to the agreement no new ratification meetings would be held and the parties were heading into a labour dispute and possible interruption of work," union spokeswoman Shirley Anderson said in statement.
In September, Jazz's maintenance and engineering division ratified its deal.
