WestJet-Union

/ 97.3 The Eagle
               The recent successful bid to unionize pilots working for WestJet has prompted a push to organize the airline’s flight attendants. Canada’s second-largest airline has long prided itself on its relationship with its employees, who it refers to as co-owners. But in recent weeks, WestJet has found itself the target of two unions looking to represent its flight attendants. The WestJet Professional Flight Attendants Association says it has 12-hundred union cards signed and needs about 200 more to reach the 40 per cent threshold to trigger a union vote. The Canadian Union of Public Employees says it’s also considering a campaign to unionize flight attendants.
