To celebrate International Flight Attendants Day, CUPE and WestJet activists were on-site at airports across Canada to celebrate the achievements of flight attendants and to look forward to a bright shared future.
Every year, on May 31, CUPE celebrates International Flight Attendants Day with our 12,000 flight attendants nationwide.
But this year was a bit different, and a bit more special, as the drive to bring WestJetters into the CUPE family gets closer and closer to the finish line.
Our drive is one year old this month, and there is so much to celebrate from the past year, and so much to celebrate about the weeks and months ahead. Together, we will make history for WestJet Cabin Crew, bring fairness and respect back into the workplace, and make bold advances for flight attendants across the industry.
CUPE is proud to be a leading advocate for health and safety, better wages, and better working conditions in the airline sector. Together with CUPE, WestJetters will achieve the fair contract and strong representation they deserve.
