Air Canada flight attendants creating a wave east to west

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Sept. 19, 2011) - Less than 24 hours before a possible strike, the Air Canada flight attendants will rally in solidarity across the country, from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean, this Tuesday Sept. 20.

Rallies will be held in seven different locations, all at 10 AM local time: Halifax, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Winnipeg, Calgary and Vancouver. Flight attendants members of the Air Canada Component of CUPE will be present, with purple banners, flags and ribbons.
