As we prepare to enter the most important period in the history of Inflight, we need to pause and assess the situation
— Chris Rauenbusch, President

Bargaining our first Collective Agreement will take considerable time and effort.

The nature of our workplace poses some unique challenges, particularly in the area of mobilization.

We are seeking volunteers to join the Mobilizing Team.

As a member of the Mobilizing Team you will:

Be in contact with the Bargaining Committee.

Act as a liaison between the Bargaining Committee, the Executive, and the members of your base.

Build enthusiasm and support for our union among your peers.

Listen to members’ concerns about workplace issues, and issues being discussed in bargaining.

Communicate key messages from the Executive and the Bargaining Committee to members.

We Need Backup

It is important to understand that the Bargaining Committee gets all of its strength from you, the Membership. The only way the Bargaining Committee will ever secure a strong Collective Agreement is with the strong backing of the Membership.

We need as many members as possible willing to voice their support for the demands of our elected Bargaining Committee.

Without an engaged and energized membership, our local will be as effective as an airplane without rudders. We’ll get airborne, but we’ll never reach our destination.

What WE are about to live through will only happen once in our lifetime!
— Jamie Loiselle, Vice-President

Be part of the movement that will bring us our first Collective Bargaining Agreement!

Help us harness the power we need to achieve a strong Collective Agreement! Together we will show the Company what it means to work together to win!
