Air Transat reaches new tentative deal with flight attendants’ union

Air Transat has reached a new tentative agreement with the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), which represents its 2,100 flight attendants.

The new deal comes following five days of intensive discussions and the new offer will be presented to members imminently.

If accepted, it will take effect as the collective agreement for the next five years.

Julie Lamontagne, chief people, communications and sustainability officer for Transat, said: “We are happy to have concluded a new tentative agreement that satisfies both parties and that will enable Air Transat to remain competitive. In response to the unforeseen rejection of the first tentative agreement last week, we immediately returned to the bargaining table to explore all possible solutions. We are confident that this new offer will meet our flight attendants’ expectations and will adequately reflect their interests.”

Air Transat will not comment on the details of the tentative agreement, out of respect for the process and the members who must still vote on the agreement.

At this time, all Air Transat flights are maintained.
