days until our Collective Agreement expires, we are preparing, we are united and we will make change.

OBSM Cabin Crew and Rouge Crew Mentor Programs

As we have pointed out in a recent bulletin, the OBSM Cabin Crew program and the Rouge Crew Mentor program are active and the Company is fully engaged with these programs.  We are monitoring them carefully. Please continue to provide information to your Local Union offices.

We know from experience that the OBSM program for Service Directors caused many members to feel fearful and intimidated.  Despite your fears and concerns we prevailed and stood strong.  We want to continue to foster solidarity and support for each other while these programs for Cabin Crew play themselves out.

With that in mind, we would like to suggest that if you have concerns about a fellow colleague that you bring these concerns to your Local Union office.  They are in a good position to address things in a much more productive way that does not lead to an erosion of our solidarity.

Our goal is to ensure that our membership of 9,500 members strong will be standing shoulder to shoulder with each other and will withstand this latest initiative.  The more that we see the value in standing together, the better our collective strength will be against whatever else comes our way.

In solidarity,
