    Celebrating 70 Years of Collective Action

    This week seventy years ago, Edith Lauterbach and fellow United Flight Attendants Ada Brown Greenfield, Francis Hall, Sally Thometz and Sally Watt Keenan were successful in organizing the first union of Flight Attendants, the foundation from which we have achieved amazing victories for equality, workplace health and safety and contracts that define our work as aviation's first responders. FULL STORY

    As we celebrate our history, we look forward to what will be achieved by this generation of Flight Attendants. We are taking action in support of contract bargaining and legislative efforts to improve the definition of our work as Flight Attendants, our job security in U.S. aviation and our safety, health and security in the aircraft cabin.

    Flight Attendant Fatigue - Fight for 10

    Flight Attendants are entrusted with the safety, health, and security of our passengers on a daily basis. Studies have been commissioned by Congress making it clear that more rest should be mandated for Flight Attendants, but the regulations remain paltry. With the rules in place today, Flight Attendants could have a mere 8 hours of rest following a 14-hour duty day! Management needs to see that we are united and resolute in our demand for equal pay for equal work.
