Health & Safety Update: PY Service Enhancements

We have received a flood of comments from members about the revised Premium Economy service standards (13DEC19 MMN, 15JAN20 globe bulletin). When taken in full context of the PY position, which may include float duties in J and for boarding, these extra tasks are nearly impossible to achieve.

The Union is very concerned by the company’s non-stop quest to add service without increasing crew complement and the negative effects its members report that this is having on them.

How can you help us represent you?

As members you should know that rushing is often found to be a contributing cause of onboard injuries. Your safety management will ALWAYS say that you should never rush. But how is that possible when the entire service is engineered AS a mad dash? How are our members expected to juggle these contradictory messages – especially with onboard managers present and timing them?

Report to the company and keep your Union in the loop. We’re all in this together and we’re only as strong as each other.

In solidarity,

Your Air Canada Component of CUPE Health and Safety Committee
