Frontier Airlines Flight Attendants Secure Tentative Agreement On Contract Improvements
Washington, DC – Frontier Airlines Flight Attendants, represented by the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA), recently announced a tentative agreement that would lock in pay, benefit and work rule improvements in exchange for the unpredictable return on equity and profit sharing. The tentative agreement includes benefits for the over 1,000 Flight Attendants, which would be implemented as mid-term contract improvements. AFA had been in discussions with management regarding changes to the Flight Attendant collective bargaining agreement prior to the purchase of the airline by Indigo Partners in December 2013.
“Frontier Flight Attendants have made great sacrifices for our airline and have stood strong against demands to surrender our collective ownership. Since last August when we began these discussions, it has been paramount that any agreement must represent the fair value for the equity and profit-sharing section of our contract. AFA was tireless in ensuring that Flight Attendants receive immediate benefits in exchange for changes in our contract. We pressed management on terms that were meaningful for Flight Attendants and we look forward to continuing our collaborative efforts as we move forward in making our airline strong and profitable once again,” said Angie Reef, AFA President at Frontier.
Ballot instructions are currently being sent to the over 1,000 Flight Attendants with voting scheduled to conclude on June 30.
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 68 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.
