Air Transat continues bargaining sessions with flight attendants


MONTREAL, Canada – Regarding the negotiations for renewal of the Air Transat flight attendants’ collective agreement, the company emphasizes that discussions, which have enabled significant progress to be made in recent months, are being actively pursued with an eye to reaching an agreement.

“We tabled a reasonable agreement that received the approval of the union executive, and we were confident that a majority of our flight attendants would also be persuaded that it was a good deal. We are therefore disappointed that this has not proved to be the case. We will be heading back to the bargaining table beginning this weekend to quickly find common ground,” said Jean-Fran├žois Lemay, President and General Manager, Air Transat, adding that the air carrier has consistently maintained positive, constructive labour relations with its personnel for nearly 30 years.
