WestJet Encore Reaches Tentative Agreement with CUPE

WestJet Encore announced that it has reached a tentative agreement with Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Local 4070, which represents WestJet Encore’s Inflight or Cabin Crew.

Both parties now await the ratification vote to be put forward to membership.

In FEB 2021, WestJet and CUPE reached an agreement on behalf of the WestJet Inflight team that operates the airline's jet fleet.

CUPE represents around 4,000 flight attendants and cabin crew members at WestJet’s mainline branch as well as its offshoots, Encore and Swoop.

"For the second time this year, I am pleased to share that we've tentatively come to terms on an agreement with CUPE Local 4070. We have negotiated the first collective agreement, on behalf of our WestJet Encore Inflight group, with CUPE," said Ed Sims, WestJet President and CEO.

"Our Inflight team members, who operate on our turboprop fleet, are an important and valued part of our operation. We intend to continue supporting them as they continue the safe, caring service our guests expect of the WestJet Group."
