Negotiations have resumed between the air carrier Air Transat and the union which represents the 2,100 flight attendants, after the latter had rejected the agreement in principle which had been reached regarding the renewal of the collective agreement.

< p class="StyledBodyHtmlParagraph-sc-48221190-4 hnvfyV">Management and the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) affiliated with the FTQ, which represents these flight attendants, confirmed that negotiations had resumed earlier this week .

An agreement in principle was reached between the parties on December 14, while the threat of a strike loomed for January 3. The strike had therefore not been called.

But, during general meetings held just before Christmas, union members rejected by 98.1% the agreement in principle that had been reached regarding the renewal of the collective agreement.

CUPE reports that it was the salary increases, considered insufficient, that irritated its members.

The parties therefore returned to the negotiating table to try to reach a new agreement in principle.

We are returning to the negotiating table and our goal remains to find common ground as soon as possible, management said earlier this week.

As for the union, it had indicated that it was still possible that it would file a new strike notice.
