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

Russian – Ukraine Update

The Union immediately reached out to the company late last night when news of the Russian invasion of Ukraine broke. We have received confirmation that because of this conflict being anticipated, affected airspace was already closed to commercial traffic and therefore flights have been routed around the affected region. The company is in contact with the relevant agencies including Eurocontrol, IATA and Transport Canada who are constantly monitoring the situation.

In Solidarity,

Wesley Lesosky
President, Air Canada Component of CUPE
