Welcome to the CUPE Local 4092 Official Website, representing Air Canada Flight Attendants in Toronto!

CUPE wins court case regarding passenger safety!! Details here.

Happy 150th Birthday Canada! While we celebrate the founding of our country, we should also reflect on our past, especially our treatment of our Aboriginal population. 50 years ago Chief Dan George delivered a powerful and prophetic speech on indigenous rights called Lament for Confederation. While many of the issues he spoke of are still outstanding, there is reason for hope as First Nations have risen up in many of the ways Chief George predicted, most recently in reoccupying Parliament Hill.

CUPE National Convention concluded last week. Visit www.cupe.cafor more information on what took place over this 5 day event.
