On Tuesday, Transport Minister David Collenette delivered a first step in financial help to Canadas struggling airline industry. Now, its time for the federal government and the companies to step up to the task of averting flight attendant layoffs.
Flight attendants have already had more than their fair share of turmoil in the industry. CUPE has a plan that would make layoffs unnecessary.
Flight attendants are part of the solution. Were calling on CUPE locals from all sectors to help deliver that message – to fax Minister Collenette. Feel free to add your own comments to the prepared letter. Your message will be copied to Human Resources Development Canada Minister Jane Stewart. CUPE is working with Minister Stewart on ways to keep flight attendants on the job.
