CUPE has put the Air Canada Component under administration after an arbitrator ruled the election process for Component officers in October 2001 was unfair.

As a result of this ruling, the elections for the positions of Component president, vice-president and treasurer have been ruled invalid and the positions deemed vacant.

The elections already underway for new Component and Local Officers will proceed, though the timing of the election may be extended to allow candidates who had stood for election in 2001 to run again should they wish.

Meanwhile the ratification vote on a tentative collective agreement at Air Canada will continue. The dates of the vote, to be supervised by the Canada Industrial Relations Board, have been extended to December 30 to ensure proper procedures are in place and give all flight attendants a chance to vote.
