WestJet flight attendants vote in favour of new work agreement

Of flight attendants eligible to vote on a new work agreement after it was negotiated between WestJet and the WestJet Flight Attendant Association Board (FAAB) on 21 April, 81.7% did so and the result showed a majority in favour.Items in the first ever ratified five-year agreement between WestJet and its flight attendants include compensation, work rules, standardised processes and a formal framework for discussion between WestJet flight attendants and the airline.“These results reflect our collaborative efforts towards a fair and balanced agreement, developed in the best interests of our people and our business,” stated Tyson Matheson, VP, inflight. “The strong voter turnout shows a high level of engagement with our flight attendants and we are pleased we have reached a five-year agreement. I thank all of our flight attendants for the remarkable guest experience they continue to provide for our guests every day.”FAAB is a subgroup of WestJet's Proactive Communication Team (PACT), the wholly-elected employee association representing close to 9,000 WestJet employees.
