Envoy Air Flight Attendants Ratify Mid-Term Improvements
Washington, D.C. (February 12, 2016) – Envoy Air Flight Attendants, represented by the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, AFL-CIO, voted to accept mid-term improvements on Friday. This agreement covers more than 1,200 Envoy Flight Attendants and Envoy, wholly owned by American Airlines, will also be hiring more than 400 Flight Attendants this year.
“Today, Envoy Flight Attendants made a collective decision that will carry us through the next four years,” said Robert Barrow, AFA President at Envoy Air. “We are dedicated to raising the standard in the regional industry for Flight Attendants.”
The mid-term improvements includes yearly pay increases through 2020, improvements to per diem and pay for reserve stand-by. Envoy Flight Attendants ratified an eight-year contract in 2012, which called for binding arbitration in 2016. Flight Attendants began negotiating with Envoy management last year, leading to an early resolution.
The Association of Flight Attendants is the world’s largest Flight Attendant union. Focused 100 percent on Flight Attendant issues, AFA has been the leader in advancing the Flight Attendant profession for 70 years. Serving as the voice for Flight Attendants in the workplace, in the aviation industry, in the media and on Capitol Hill, AFA has transformed the Flight Attendant profession by raising wages, benefits and working conditions. Nearly 60,000 Flight Attendants come together to form AFA, part of the 700,000-member strong Communications Workers of America (CWA), AFL-CIO. Visit us at www.afacwa.org.
