MONTREAL, July 5, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - Following negotiations for renewal of the Air Transat flight attendants' collective agreement, the federal Labour department's mediator submitted a new recommendation last night that was accepted by both parties. It will be submitted to a vote by flight attendants in the coming weeks.
"We eagerly accept this recommendation, which will resolve the impasse with our flight attendants," said Jean-François Lemay, President and General Manager of Air Transat. "The strike threat is ended and travellers can book and fly with us with total peace of mind."
