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

Unpaid Work Won't Fly!

Did you know flight attendants in Canada work for an average of 35 hours for free every month?

Because airlines don’t pay flight attendants for duties like assisting passengers with boarding, pre-flight safety checks, deplaning, and other delays, flight attendants spend nearly a full workweek every month working for free. Even though they’re on the job in uniform and taking responsibility for the safety and well-being of their passengers. In Canada in 2023.

Think that’s messed up? So do we. And our CEO doesn't think it is appropriate to comment on this. Add your voice to tell the federal government and the big airlines: unpaid work won’t fly!
