Update on YYC Widebody Reassignment

Dear Members,

Further to our update on September 29 regarding the reassignment of up to 58 members in the YYC Widebody Base, we wish to provide you with further information.

On Monday September 30, CUPE Local 4070 was provided with a copy of the Widebody ‘Hire Date/Class’ List that the Employer plans to use to implement this temporary reassignment. The Union has now had a chance to vet the list, and review it for complete accuracy. The Union had many questions, which were adequately answered by the Employer.

Additionally, the Union and the Company have made a one-time agreement to allow the ability for CMs assigned to the CCM role to trade/pickup CM pairings and receive the CM compensation on a prorated basis for the duration of the temporary reassignment.

The Employer has informed us that the offer for volunteers is now closed, and that they plan to inform impacted members starting this evening.

Should you require any further assistance from your Union as it relates to this issue, please continue to contact your Base VP:

In Solidarity,

Chris Rauenbusch, President
