dismissed union activists include Mandalena Lewis, who accused the company of failing to investigate her complaint of sexual assault.

A fourth leader in the union campaign, president Tara Mowat, was summoned to a disciplinary hearing based on anonymous reports of drug use, but was cleared.

The WestJet Professional Flight Attendants Association has filed three formal complaints with the Canada Industrial Relations Board alleging the firings were an attempt to thwart the union drive.

The firing of association treasurer Daniel Kufuor-Boakye “was intended to punish him for his union involvement and to send a threatening message to all WestJet employees in an attempt to dissuade them from freely choosing their own union,”

Thanks. God bless.
