Flight Attendant Unions Unified for Bargaining
More than 100 representatives from unions representing better than 90,000 flight attendants at 26 U.S. airlines began work last week on joint strategy to raise the standard for wages, retirement, health care, benefits and working conditions for all flight attendants and retirees.
Contracts at those airlines are set to expire during the next two years.
Working together as a whole is the key to advancing our profession. Regardless of who we are individually, our members are all flight attendants. We have seen how airline management groups borrow from each other during negotiations, and it is time to turn the table. By creating a single message on key issues, we have a better chance of tackling the corporate machine.
