Flight Attendants Turn Up the Heat Over Frontier Airlines Contract Negotiations

Frontier Flight Attendants Hold Informational Picket

Denver — Flight Attendants at Frontier Airlines will picket Tuesday at Denver International Airport to pressure Frontier management to work to bring Flight Attendant negotiations to a close. Picketing will continue over the busy summer travel season unless contract negotiations are resolved. This could mean turbulent skies ahead for labor relations at Frontier Airlines. Last week, Frontier Pilots requested a release from federal mediation, edging closer to a possible strike.

“Flight Attendants are overdue for an agreement that recognizes our contributions to the profitability of the airline,” said Jennifer Sala, Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA) Frontier President. “If management does not move forward to reach an agreement, we will keep turning up the heat until Frontier Flight Attendants get the contract we deserve.”

Frontier Flight Attendants have plans to picket at each Frontier-base airport in an escalating campaign to pressure management to get serious at the negotiating table.

Negotiations began in November 2015, and continue in mediation with the oversight of the National Mediation Board. Mediation is scheduled to continue this week in Denver. As the airline grows, the company also faces increasing labor issues as the busy summer travel season begins.
