Swoop Flight Attendants represented by CUPE Local 4070, ratify collective agreement


CALGARY, AB, Sept. 25, 2021 /CNW/ - Swoop today announced the successful ratification of the airline's first five-year agreement for its Inflight Crew Members (Flight Attendants), represented by the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE). 

"I am pleased to share that we have achieved our first collective agreement with CUPE," said Charles Duncan, President of Swoop. "This five-year agreement with our Flight Attendants demonstrates the continued professionalism and respect between Swoop and CUPE Local 4070. As we move forward with a focus on our recovery, we welcome the successful ratification of the agreement and thank all parties involved for their efforts, diligence and advocacy throughout this process." 

The time invested in the negotiations by both parties, leading up to ratification, was necessary to work through the many complex terms and conditions. 

"Since our first flight in 2018, our flight attendants have played a vital role in delivering on Swoop's mission to make air travel more affordable for Canadians," said Shane Workman, Head of Flight Operations at Swoop. "Swoop Flight Attendants are first-rate, regularly receiving positive feedback from travellers for their professionalism, service and most importantly, commitment to safety." 

This ratified agreement is in place from October 1, 2021, through September 30, 2026.
