We want to take a moment to give a warm and sincere welcome to all of our new hires. As CUPE Union members we have been in your shoes, and we understand the challenges that you face. The Union and its members are a great resource for you, and we encourage you to reach out if you have any questions. Keep in mind in these early days and months that you will have a period of adjustment. Flying as a crew member is a whole new world as they say, and you will need to take care of your health and well-being as some of the days can be long and grueling. The challenges faced by Flight Attendants in this modern world are unprecedented but there are so many life changing experiences that you will have and so many great crew members you will meet that will make it all worthwhile. We wish you the best with all of these challenges and hope that you will enjoy many amazing layovers and spend time with colleagues who will become lifelong friends.
In the spirit of helping you to manage some of the twists and turns of your workday we want to remind you that have many resources at your fingertips. Check out our website at www.accomponent.ca. Under the Resources tab you will find links to much needed support which include your Local Union office, Health and Safety Committee, Reserve Committee, Women’s Committee, Preferential Bidding Committee and many more. If you ever have questions relating to these things or anything else, we encourage you to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
