CUPE has been certified to represent about 125 flight attendants at CanJet, a Halifax-based carrier that flies throughout Canada and to Florida.
“These flight attendants are a loyal, dedicated and hard-working group who have contributed to, and want to share in, the success of CanJet,” said Marilyne White, a CUPE servicing representative.
White has maintained a five-year relationship with the CanJet flight attendants, many of whom were represented by CUPE when they were part of Canada 3000.
“The main issues for the flight attendants are scheduling rules, or lack thereof, and demanding respect from their employer,” White said.
Negotiations for a collective agreement will start next month.
