工会官员说,加拿大最大的航空公司Air Canada由于COVID-19疫情,削减了航线和停泊的飞机,加拿大航空公司将裁员5,000多名。


加拿大公共雇员联合会(CUPE)加拿大航空部负责人韦斯利·莱索斯基(Wesley Lesosky)表示,该航空公司将裁员约3600名干线员工以及加航Rouge的1549名乘务员。


莱索斯基说,裁员将在四月生效,这将影响到两个部门中约60%的空乘人员。


加拿大航空表示,裁员是暂时的,当航空公司能够提高其网络时间表时,员工将返回现役状态。


这家位于蒙特利尔的公司周三表示,将在3月31日之前暂停大部分国际和美国航班。


该航空公司的股价在两个月内暴跌了76%,在过去两周中,随着边境关闭和航班需求暴跌,该股急剧下跌。


莱索斯基在一份声明中说:“这是我们中任何一个空姐经历的最具挑战性的时刻。”


“从第一天开始,我们的成员就一直处于这场危机的前线,从那以后,这是艰难的旅程。我们向所有成员致以诚挚的敬意,尤其是那些在工作中生病的人。”


工会已经确认,被解雇或面临“下班状态”的成员将能够领取就业保险,并获得福利。


CUPE还表示,它将协助下岗成员的下一步行动,并努力在行业状况稳定后将其遣返。


A union official says Air Canada is laying off more than 5,000 flight attendants as the country’s largest airline cuts routes and parks planes due to COVID-19.

Wesley Lesosky, who heads the Air Canada component of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), says the carrier is laying off about 3,600 mainline employees as well as all of Air Canada Rouge’s 1,549 flight attendants.

The layoffs, which Lesosky says will take effect by April, affect roughly 60 per cent of flight attendants at the two segments.

Air Canada says the layoffs are temporary and employees will be returned to active duty status when the airline is able to ramp up its network schedule.

The Montreal-based company said Wednesday it will suspend the majority of its international and U.S. flights by March 31.

The airline’s stock has plummeted 76 per cent in two months, dropping steeply in the past two weeks as borders close and flight demand plunges.

“This has been the most challenging time any of us will likely ever experience as flight attendants,” Lesosky said in a statement.

“Our members have been on the front lines of this crisis since day one, and it has been a tough journey ever since. Our hearts go out to all of our members, especially those who fell sick while doing their job.”

The union has confirmed that members being laid off, or facing “off-duty status,” will be able to collect Employment Insurance, and also access benefits.

CUPE also said it will assist laid-off members with their next steps and work to bring them back once conditions in the industry stabilize.
