The Canadian Union of Public Employees has been certified to represent flight attendants at Swoop, a fully owned subsidiary of WestJet.
CUPE has previously been certified by the Canadian Industrial Relations Board to represent flight attendants at Westjet mainline and Encore, Westjet’s regional carrier.
With the addition of the 170 Swoop employees, CUPE now represents almost 4,000 WestJet Flight Attendants. All flight attendants of WestJet and its subsidiaries are now represented by CUPE.
“It is such a pleasure to welcome this last part of the WestJet organization into CUPE,” said Mark Hancock, president of CUPE National. “We are honoured that Flight Attendants put their trust in us and we will work hard to keep that trust.”
