DSC_0090 (1)Air Canada and the union representing the airline’s flight attendants announced that the two parties have reached an agreement for a new ten-year contract.

The agreement is subject to ratification by the 7,300 flight attendants at Air Canada and its Air Canada rouge low-cost subsidiary who are members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees.

It included multiple improvements covering job security, according to Michel Cournoyer, president of the union’s Airline Division. The union said it plans to unanimously endorse ratification to its rank-and-file members.

The airline applauded the new contract, saying it would “support long term profitable growth.”

In October 2014, the airline agreed on a new, ten-year contract with its 3,000 pilots.
