Dues rates and other by-law changes

Today at 5:00 pm MST, we will hold a telephone town hall meeting for all members to explain the changes we are proposing to our by-laws, which includes a proposed rate of dues.

You should get a phone call between 5:00-5:10 pm adding you to the call. If you do not, call 1-877-229-8493, with ID code 112289 to join.

You can read the entire proposed by law package here (en français). Changes from the initial by-laws are in blue.

Didn’t we pass by-laws already?

Yes, we passed the framework for by-laws which allowed us to elect an executive and start operating as a Local. However, some decisions were put off so that the executive could make them, rather than staff. We feel strongly that our own elected representatives should prepare a budget and make the decisions about a proposed dues level, rather than leave it to the staff at CUPE National.

So, what are the changes?

We are setting a dues rate, establishing rules for paying members who are ‘booked off’ work for union business, and some other minor changes we will detail on the call today.

Get to the point, what is the proposed dues rate?

We are proposing that dues be set at 1.1% on top of the CUPE National per capita payment of 0.85% for a total of 1.95% of regular wages.

Why that rate?

As a new local, we need funding to set up shop. We need office equipment and an office, we need to spend on education to train our stewards and executive, and we have to be ready for a long set of negotiations.

Doesn’t CUPE National cover most of that?

CUPE National covers some of that, but not all. CUPE provides staff for bargaining, legal work, education, research and communications.  CUPE also provides some funding on a cost share basis with it’s locals.  But day to day grievance handling, booking off staff, and other costs associated with bargaining are the responsibility of the local.

Who pays dues, it is just members?

All flight attendants covered by the CUPE certification will pay dues.  Paying dues does not make you a member in good standing. To be a member in good standing you must sign a membership card and pay the $5.00 initiation fee.

Are dues for all earnings, what are ‘regular wages’?

Dues are based on regular earnings. They do not apply to meal allowances, owners’ performance award, other expenses or overtime.

When do we vote?

Voting will start tomorrow morning at 6:00 am MST, and polls will be open until 6:00 pm MST on Monday February 11th.

If you are a member in good standing, you should receive an email inviting you to vote tomorrow morning at 6:00 am. If you don’t receive one, please check your junk/spam mail.  If you still can’t find it, contact returning officer Lou Arab at larab@cupe.ca and he will make sure you get to vote.

As with elections, you must be a CUPE member to vote. If you have not yet signed a membership card and paid your $5 initiation fee, you can do so online here: https://westjet.cupe.ca/mainline-membership/. Non-members who sign up before Friday, February 8, 2018 at noon MST will get a chance to vote.

UPDATE – Committee elections

ccooper Uncategorized

Recently, WestJet was advised of CUPE 4070’s committee election results. The company advised the union that they do not intend to meet or negotiate with anyone who is on the Cabin Manager or Onboard Operations lists, as they are contesting the inclusion of these members in the bargaining unit before the CIRB. The employer maintains the position that these members are managers. This is a common employer tactic that serves to delay the process, and cause frustration among our members.

We have always maintained that these two groups are not managers, and do not perform managerial functions in any capacity. It is the position of CUPE 4070 that they will remain a part of our bargaining unit until the CIRB returns with a ruling.

We will be moving forward with committees as they were elected by our members. It is the right of our members, not the company, to determine who represents us on the bargaining committee.

Short term adjustments will be made in order to respond to the company’s demands, however, these members will continue to serve our local in the positions they were elected to.

In solidarity,

Your CUPE local 4070 executive team

NOTE: Stay tuned for information regarding an important telephone-town hall meetingfor CUPE 4070 members on: February 4th at 5:00 pm Mountain.  Mark your calendars!

Executive Update: new survey and other news

ccooper Uncategorized

Dear Members,

Happy New Year! Starting 2019, building CUPE Local 4070 is our priority.

In this update, you’ll find information about:

  • Training and education for your elected executive members this month and February.
  •  A specific and concise survey just sent to members, to arm your 4070 representatives with the understanding of  your priorities, as we prepare to commence bargaining of our first Collective Agreement in March.
  •  An upcoming vote for select Bylaw changes and approval of our dues levels.
  •  Invitation by WestJet senior leadership to meet.

January is off to a quick start with respect to education and training of your 4070 Executive. January 7–9th saw us in YYZ with the CUPE training team on the topic of Occupational Health & Safety. We are getting the right information, so our OH&S concerns are advocated for effectively, along with training on the appropriate federal legislation which legally protects our OH&S rights.

January 11-13th saw your representation trained in the CUPE Financial Officers seminar. It is crucial that the financial resources of our membership are treated respectfully, dutifully and as per the appropriate accounting and legal principles under which CUPE Locals must adhere.

In February we will continue training seminars facilitated by CUPE National including: bargaining workshops, as well as our own specific 4070 bargaining strategic planning sessions, related to our upcoming CBA bargaining starting in the second half of March.

In your inbox today: a detailed survey we need in order to answer the BIG questions prior to bargaining. Reserve, Seniority, Bidding System: this is a survey you don’t want to miss. If you haven’t’ been sent one, email Lou Arab at larab@cupe.ca.

We will be proposing Local 4070 Bylaw changes, including the authorizing of the amount and collection of union dues. We cannot move forward with office space, infrastructure, daily support systems, etc. until we approve our dues levels, and for the dues to begin. This is the most important change being presented. There will be other minor changes presented such as an amendment to give the Vice-President a seat on the Bargaining Committee, for example.

Finally, the President and Vice-President have been invited to meet with Jeff Martin, WestJet’s Chief Operating Officer to get to know each other, and become familiar prior to heading into bargaining in March. As well, Louis Saint-Cyr, Vice President Guest Experience has extended a similar invitation. We are committed to ensuring that we follow through with these opportunities to help the Company’s leadership get to know your representation and to better understand what we stand for as your democratically elected Union Executive.

In solidarity,

CUPE Local 4070 Executive

GROOMING UPDATE:

ccooper Uncategorized

The Pilots’ contract which came into effect just before the holidays has caused some impact on the line directly impacting Flight Attendants. Following the advice of their own union, Pilots are completing their safety duties before “volunteering” to assist with grooming.  WestJet has asked Flight Attendants to “write up” Pilots who do not “volunteer” for this work. The Pilots’ contract does not include language directing them to clean the aircraft on a complimentary basis.

Flight Attendants have made it very clear to the Local 4070 Executive that they will not accept being accountable for unpaid cleaning of the company fleet on an ongoing basis.

There have been little to no documented rules, contract/agreements or even informal documents by the company which identify who is responsible for, and when voluntary cleaning of the aircraft is to take place.

We will start bargaining for our own contract in March. If Pilots are pressured into doing unpaid grooming, it will make it much more difficult for us to take our position forward (that the work is outside our scope and should be compensated regardless).

By completing their safety duties first, our Pilots are helping us set the stage for our own battle on the issue.

We urge our Membership to rally together, Pilots and Cabin Crew, to ensure that the temporary setbacks we feel now, lead to success down the line.

In short, we are asking the following of you:

  • Continue to groom as normal, until we can get the issue to the bargaining table. We cannot legally engage in job action at this time.
  • Please do not “write up” Pilots. That adds pressure on the Pilots to give in, which will hurt our cause down the line.
  • Try to work with Pilots and be united. Our interests are joined on this issue.
  • Let CUPE stewards know if there are conflicts with Pilots that need to be resolved. We will discuss matters with ALPA and try to resolve them amicably.

Please make every effort to unite with our ALPA members, and do not help foster division even when they can’t help us clean up in the back. It is in our own best interests in the long run.
