Welcome to the CUPE Local 4092 Official Website

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

Welcome New CUPE Members!
We want to wish a warm welcome to our new colleagues taking to the skies for the first time this month! On our local website under ‘Member Resources’ you can find an electronic copy of many useful documents, including the YYZ Welcome Package, Reserve Handbook and Collective Agreement. You are now part of the CUPE family and it is important to understand your rights at work. As soon as you are assigned to line duty, you became a CUPE member. You can attend a union meeting, call your local for advice or file a grievance. You are, however, on probation, which means that the Company does not have to prove just cause to terminate your employment. The probationary period is when the Company gets to evaluate your suitability to the flight attendant position. If you are not sure what this means or have any questions about situations that arise during the course of your employment, contact us. We are here to help!
