Air Canada flight attendants officially opened bargaining on October 14 demanding their share of the record profits that they have helped create.

At a media conference in Montreal following the initial meeting with management, National President Judy Darcy said: “The time has come for Air Canada to reward its employees for the sacrifices made. With company profits topping $1.2 million daily, flight attendants deserve their fair share.”

Key demands for the 5,000 flight attendants include increased wages, improvements to pensions and safety issues related to hours of work, rest periods and crew complement.
