About AFA

afalogo_clear.jpgThe Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA-CWA) is the world's largest labor union organized by flight attendants for flight attendants.  AFA represents nearly 60,000 flight attendants at 19 airlines, serving as a voice for flight attendants at their workplace, in the industry, in the media and on Capitol Hill.  Simply put, the goal of flight attendants who become part of AFA-CWA is to negotiate better pay, benefits, working conditions and work rules at their airline, and to improve their safety on the job.

  • AFA-CWA negotiates the best flight attendant contracts in the industry, maintaining and improving wages, benefits and working conditions for flight attendants.

  • AFA-CWA has strength in numbers and a professional staff to assist flight attendants with workplace, career and interpersonal concerns.

  • AFA-CWA is a democratic union representing flight attendants at every type of carrier. All AFA-CWA officers are flight attendants who solicit member input on policy and financial decisions.

  • AFA-CWA is the only flight attendant union that solely represents flight attendants' concerns within the AFL-CIO, the 13-million-member American labor federation.

  • AFA-CWA shares information and strategies, working in solidarity with flight attendant unions around the world through the International Transport Workers Federation (ITF).
