CALGARY, AB, March 20, 2021 /CNW/ - WestJet today announced that WestJet Cabin Crew Members, represented by the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), have successfully ratified their first five-year agreement.

This ratified agreement is in place retroactively from March 1, 2021, through to and including December 31, 2025.

"We are pleased that we were able to achieve our first collective agreement with CUPE," said Ed Sims, WestJet President and CEO. "The resulting agreement is a reflection of the interest-based bargaining required to achieve this positive outcome and it is a strong example of how we can work together, respectfully with dedication and professionalism, to benefit our employees and our guests during these challenging times.

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