MONTREAL — Air Transat flight attendants have voted in favour of a new contract with the Montreal-based company.
According to the Canadian Union of Public Employees, 61% of employees voted in favour of a mediator’s recommendation to end the labour dispute.
In a vote that took place on June 30, 93.2% of cabin crew members had rejected a tentative agreement reached on June 6, just days after they voted in favour of a strike mandate.
Air Transat says the six-year work contract is now in force, retroactive to Nov. 1, 2015.
“We are very pleased that the proposed offer has been accepted by a majority of our flight attendants,” said Jean-Francois Lemay, President and General Manager, Air Transat.
Union president Martyn Smith says CUPE is “very satisfied with the outcome of the bargaining process.”
