Air Transat flight attendants vote in favour of new agreement
MONTREAL – Their union says Air Transat flight attendants have voted in favour of a new contract with the Montreal-based company.
The Canadian Union of Public Employees says 61 per cent of employees voted in favour of a mediator’s recommendation to end the labour dispute.
In a vote on June 30, 93.2 per cent of cabin crew members had rejected a tentative agreement reached on June 6, just days after they voted in favour of a strike mandate.
Air Transat says the six-year contract is now in force, retroactive to Nov. 1, 2015.
Union president Martyn Smith says CUPE is “very satisfied with the outcome of the bargaining process.”
CUPE represents about 1,750 flight attendants.
