REMINDER – COVID-19 – Airline Employment Membership Survey

Just a reminder, if you have not already done so, to complete our short survey regarding COVID-19 impacts and employment. You can access the survey here:

This survey is anonymous, and answers will not identify individuals in any way.

As you are all aware, tens of thousands of flight attendants around the world have been laid off or furloughed.  Some members are currently in the CEWS programs, others are collecting EI benefits. Recall periods for CUPE’s various airline locals range from 2-5 years.  With lengthy recall periods and the lack of information from the government on what supports may be available to workers who may be affected by COVID-19 for periods that stretch past eligible EI periods, CUPE is interested in hearing from you.

CUPE has heard from its airline membership that members are currently exploring temporary options for employment.  CUPE can assist with finding other temporary employment options of interest by working with the government and employers as we are already working on other projects such as: Just Transition, Improving Long Term Care, increasing childcare access, and improving education resources.

Have your voice heard – complete the survey!
