Frontier Flight Attendants Reject Company Offer For Improved Contract In Exchange for Equity and Profit Sharing
Frontier Airlines Flight Attendants, represented by the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA), today rejected new contract terms that would replace the equity and profit sharing portion of the current agreement. AFA has been in discussions with management over equity and profit sharing since prior to the purchase of the airline by Indigo Partners in December 2013.
“Frontier Flight Attendants have sacrificed and worked hard to help achieve success for our airline. AFA has worked tirelessly to ensure that Flight Attendants are full partners and our collective ownership remains meaningful. Since negotiations began in August 2013, AFA was clear that any new agreement must represent the fair value for the equity and profit-sharing section of our contract. We look forward to full recognition of our valuable contributions,” said Angie Reef, AFA President at Frontier.
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.
