Winnipeg - Contract negotiations have begun between CALM Air and their 35 flight attendants, represented by the Canadian Union of Public Employees.

We want a workplace that flight attendants will view as a career and not as a stepping stone to another job or another airline, said Carolyn Peters, president of the CALM Air Component of CUPE. Improvements to our wages and working conditions will be a priority in this round of bargaining. We intend to put more money in the pockets of Flight Attendants and improve our pension and benefit plans.

Negotiations will resume in mid-December in Thompson, Manitoba.


Most CALM Air flight attendants live in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

CALM Air serves communities in Manitoba including Thompson, Churchill, Flin Flon and The Pas, and in Nunavut including Rankin Inlet, Arviat and Baker Lake. They operate Saab 340 and Hawker Siddley 748 aircraft.
