Got bills? Unionized flight attendants bargain better pay

hpouliot Uncategorized

We all know that the cost of everything is going up and we think our wages should increase too. The fact is, unionized flight attendants can bargain better wages than their non-union counterparts doing the same work.

We have heard from many of you that you’re scraping by and sometimes working two jobs. It doesn’t have to be that way, and by working together, Encore flight attendants can make better wages their priority.

There isn’t any magic to it. Standing together in a union gets results. Have a look at what other flight attendants represented by CUPE have negotiated, and see for yourself:
