AFA Coordinates Support And Resources For Flight Attendants Affected By Pinnacle Base Closure In Atlanta
Washington, DC - March 27-28, 2013 – When Pinnacle Airlines announced the closure of the Atlanta domicile, 180 Pinnacle Flight Attendants were affected. Understanding that many questions remain, the Association of Flight Attendants- CWA (AFA), the union for Pinnacle Flight Attendants, is coordinating with state agencies to provide local assistance to crewmembers. On March 27 and 28, AFA will hold meetings to provide an opportunity for Flight Attendants to connect with local services.
In addition to providing information about available resources, AFA will assist displaced Flight Attendants with information on benefits and health care. Personal time with representatives will also be available at the meetings
“Due to the volatile nature of the airline industry, AFA has significant experience in providing assistance for Flight Attendants who are displaced. AFA works tirelessly to represent Flight Attendants despite any challenges and ensure that no one is left behind as a result of business decisions made by management,” said Terry French, AFA Pinnacle President.
