Air Transat Reaches Deal with Flight Attendant Union
Air Transat has announced that it has achieved a fresh provisional agreement with the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), which represents its 2,100 flight attendants. After engaging in five days of rigorous discussions, the offer will soon be presented to the members. If approved, it will become the collective agreement for the upcoming five years.
Julie Lamontagne, Chief People, Communications and Sustainability Officer of Transat, expresses satisfaction with the newly reached tentative agreement that satisfies both parties and ensures Air Transat’s competitiveness. In light of the unexpected rejection of the initial agreement, immediate action was taken to resume negotiations and explore alternative options. The confidence in this revised offer is rooted in the belief that it aligns with the expectations of our flight attendants and adequately represents their interests.
Air Transat respects the process and the members who are yet to vote on the agreement, and therefore will not provide any comments on the specific details of the tentative agreement.
At this time, all Air Transat flights are maintained.
