We advocate by the targeted and effective dissemination of our views to a wide range of stakeholders. We develop and share advocacy messages on critical industry and aviation issues to all levels of government, regulatory authorities around the world, international and domestic aviation and aerospace organizations, airport authorities, fellow trade unions and the media.
We represent our members on individual issues with the employer, as well as collectively through the bargaining process to ensure better working conditions and career prospects for our highly trained and specialized professional members. Our staff — which includes lawyers and labour relations experts — are dedicated to serving our pilots throughout their careers.
We engage our members on an ongoing basis, through their interactions with their elected representatives, via surveys and through member communications, to continuously update and adjust our direction.
