A tentative agreement was negotiated between WestJet and the WestJet Flight Attendant Association Board (FAAB), the association representing its flight attendants, and was agreed to on April 21, 2015. Voting began on May 22, 2015, and ended May 28, 2015, at 9 a.m. MDT. Items in the ratified five-year agreement include compensation, work rules, standardized processes and a formal framework for discussion between WestJet flight attendants and the airline.
FAAB is a subgroup of WestJet’s Proactive Communication Team (PACT), the wholly-elected employee association representing close to 9,000 WestJetters. This is the first ratified agreement between WestJet and its flight attendants.
“These results reflect our collaborative efforts towards a fair and balanced agreement, developed in the best interests of our people and our business,” said Tyson Matheson, Vice-President, Inflight. “The strong voter turnout shows a high level of engagement with our flight attendants and we are pleased we have reached a five-year agreement. I thank all of our flight attendants for the remarkable guest experience they continue to provide for our guests every day.”
