Following a set of membership conference calls with Unifor officials last week, members at Flair Airlines have clearly spoken that they are in favour of legal job action – if necessary – in order to obtain a fair and equitable first contract.
96% of the union members at Flair Airlines participated in a vote relating to utilizing job action. The membership overwhelming support their bargaining committee with a 98% yes vote.
"The members at Flair Airlines overwhelmingly support the bargaining committee and their efforts to obtain a fair and equitable first collective agreement," said Euila Leonard, Unifor Local 2002 President.
Unifor and Flair Airlines are scheduled to meet again from June 5-8 in Kelowna where the union is optimistic that a realistic offer will be agreed upon. The bargaining committee has every intention to conclude the bargaining process whereby we reach a tentative agreement.
The bargaining committee would like to thank you, the membership for your ongoing support during these negotiations. Solidarity is critical to our success.
