CUPE National President Mark Hancock made the following statement today in response to the news Lynx Air will be shutting down operations on Monday.

“We are devastated for our members at Lynx and all the employees who lost their jobs today.  While this is a hard day for the employees of Lynx, they are better off for belonging to Canada’s largest union. CUPE will represent them and defend their rights in these difficult times. We will fight to ensure the employees get everything they are legally entitled to.”

CUPE represents 240 flight attendants at the airline.
