Happy New Year from all of us at your CUPE-WestJet Encore organizing team. In 2018, flight attendants at WestJet mainline achieved what many thought was impossible – they won their right to union representation. In 2019, it’s Encore’s turn.
Many of you have signed your card. Well done! But we are still short of the mark we need to push this organizing drive over the finish line.
If you’re looking for a New Years resolution, we’ve got an idea that’s unlike most other resolutions, because it’s straight-forward, practical, and will benefit you for the rest of your career.
In 2019 (preferably over the next few weeks!), make a resolution to sign up one or two or five of your friends and colleagues to bring this campaign closer to the finish line.
Successful union drives depend on everyone pitching in and having important conversations with our coworkers about the issues that matter to us. They depend on talking about the problems, and talking about how an organized workforce with the support of a union can create solutions.
Not sure where to start? Here are just some of the ways that CUPE will make work and life better for WestJet Encore flight attendants.
- Better pay and benefits
- Fair, predictable scheduling
- More efficient pairings
- Transparent flow-through process
- Enforceable contracts that management can’t change on a whim
- Better layover provisions
- Wardrobe allowance
- And more! Read more about the CUPE advantage.
Encore flight attendants deserve the protection and benefits that come with a union.
Together, in 2019, let’s ensure they have it with CUPE!
