The news comes just days after WestJet announced that it had reached an agreement with the pilots union representing WestJet Encore pilots.

“CUPE has industry-leading experience and expertise in improving the working conditions and the lives of our flight attendant members,” said CUPE National President Mark Hancock. “We look forward to adding Encore flight attendants to our airline family.”

The union said it had filed an application at the Canada Industrial Relations Board to represent the carrier’s flight attendants on Thursday.
