The dates and locations for the Roadshows are as follows:

– YVR – July 8, 2024 from 10:00h to 12:00h PT (Sheraton Wall Center) in attendance will be Carolyn Bugnon, Local 4094 – YVR Base President, Kevin Tyrrell, CUPE National Representative, Wesley Lesosky, Air Canada Component President.

– YYZ – July 23, 2024 from 10:00h to 13:00h ET (Sheraton Gateway Hotel – O’Hare Room, YYZ Airport, Terminal 3) *New Location* in attendance will be Denis Montpetit, Local 4092 – YYZ Base President, Craig Smith, Local 4098 – Rouge Vice President, Kevin Tyrrell, CUPE National Representative, Theresa Mitchell, Air Canada Component Vice President.

These road shows can be attended by any member, from any base and these meetings will be done in person, with your Local Base Presidents, the CUPE National Rep and a Component Officer from that base. We want to be able to have an engaged discussion where everyone feels heard and can seek clarity as needed. This will be more like a Local General Membership Meeting, fully focused on the bargaining process, an overview of what we have identified through the bargaining survey along with presentations on the bargaining process, Unpaid Work Wont Fly campaign, ACCEX Strategic planning going into bargaining and Strike and Lock out education. There will be no zoom participation for the above meetings as we want to encourage open frank discussion after the presentation and we do not want members to be discouraged from honest dialogue and the fear that some may record and share with others.

Following the above roadshows, the Union will also be doing an information session by Zoom to go over what was shared at the Roadshows, along with a recap of additional comments and questions from the meetings from the membership. The meeting will be held in August 2024, more info to come with times and registration. Registration for this event will be open to all members system wide.

Please submit the form by 4:00 pm EDT on Tuesday, July 2, 2024. Your prompt response will greatly help us in planning and ensuring a smooth and enjoyable experience for all attendees.

Thank you for your cooperation and your support. We look forward to seeing you at the Roadshows!

In solidarity,

Your Bargaining Committee
