United Flight Attendants Picket Around the World Thursday in Push for Joint Contract
WASHINGTON, D.C. —United Airlines Flight Attendants, represented by the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, AFL-CIO (AFA), will protest at major airports around the world on Thursday, June 16, as they press to reach an industry-leading contract.
“It’s been six years since this merger began, and it’s time for a joint Flight Attendant contract. We are the people of this airline. Customer service and safety start with Flight Attendants. We must be recognized for our sacrifices that made this merger possible. Contract now,” said AFA Presidents at United Airlines Kathleen Domondon (pre-merger Continental Micronesia), Ken Diaz (pre-merger United), and Randy Hatfield (pre-merger Continental).
The National Mediation Board has scheduled two weeks of negotiations in June in a plan to finish negotiations for a joint collective bargaining agreement for United Airlines Flight Attendants. For more information visit, OurContract.org.
