URGENT: Help WestJet Flight Attendants contact CUPE

July 2017

Dear colleagues and friends, We need your help!

WestJet Flight Attendants recently reached out to CUPE and asked to join our organization. “They are ready!”

The WestJet Professional Flight Attendant Association (WPFAA) has been trying to organize WestJet Flight Attendants for almost two years now and are sending false information about the status of their drive and incorrect facts about CUPE and the Airline Service Division. We must clear this out as this is confusing many WestJet Flight Attendants. Our biggest challenge is reaching approximately 3,100 WestJet Flight Attendants working 24/7 all over the world.

We have attached an electronic information brochure including a detachable application for membership card. We ask that you please circulate this memo and brochure to your staff, locals, family and friends along with the link to the CUPE WestJet website. Social media is the most practical tool in this type of drive and we really need your help to get our message out to anyone and everyone. Post it on your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or any means you have and indicate to pass it on.


There are four main staff organizers. If you need anything, please do not hesitate to contact them.

Quebec: Sophie Cunningham, (514) 236-0175, scunningham@scfp.ca

Ontario: Daniela Scarpelli, (416) 458-0588, dscarpelli@cupe.ca

Alberta: Patrick Barbosa, (250) 618-9961, pbarbosa@cupe.ca

Thank you very much for your assistance. It is greatly appreciated.

In solidarity,
