Air Transat flight attendants reject tentative deal, will return to bargaining table

Flight attendants at Air Transat have voted to reject a tentative deal with the Canadian leisure carrier.

The Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), which represents the 2,100 flight attendants at the airline, says more than 98 per cent of workers voted against the tentative contract reached Dec. 14.

The union says it will be back at the bargaining table with Transat later this week.
